Yummy Tart

Maybe it’s a cultural thing?

    What comes to my mind is my brother’s highly objectionable habit of saying ‘Tarty piece’ every time he saw a sexily dressed woman.

    A yummy pastry is what I think of. That is what Google thinks of too, based on the search results. I am not sure what some people might be thinking of :-)

    I should explain that in Australian culture (& perhaps British) “tart” is a word frequently used to describe a “wanton woman” – i.e. “Look at how she’s dressed – what a tart”! Fortunately, I’m sure it would go over the heads of most of the US population and most pre-teens in Australia.

    It does raise eyebrows, hopefully “just” a matter of a lack of cultural awareness in the UK and Australian markets.

    FYI definition of tart from the American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language

    1a. A pastry shell with shallow sides, no top crust, and any of various fillings.
    b. Chiefly British A pie. 2a. A prostitute. b. A woman considered to be sexually promiscuous.

    Even I would raise an eyebrow to that one. We are so over Bratz in this house. Thank you. Thank you.

    I thought ‘Japanese’ on first glimpse. We forgive them anything because their traslations are so funny… but this is American? Heh. Oh well.

    Oh dear. The thing is, the children that play with it are innocent enough to not think twice. So there’s not really that much wrong with it.

    Actually, it entertains the parent who buys it by making them laugh so in fact it’s brilliant!
