sb :: bhangbadea :: prussian circus performer

"Fragen sie mich nach ihren gedanken"

From a collection of collectible circus posters of magicians.

The German reads: ask they me for their thoughts

I suspect that this means the lady was active during the Whytecliffe-Prussian War of the Trenches.

Yes. Very slightly modified by photoshop, but the lady did have dark skin and wild red hair. And the phrase was there already. Weird, eh?

The shadows are so cool.
Oh, and the link to the exhibit: Circus Museum.

Okay, not to be all German-nerd here, but...

The capitalization suggests that the pronouns are the formal "you/your" rather than "they/their". So it is probably better translated to something like "Ask me for your thoughts" or "Ask me by your thoughts".

(As you can see, I'm not as clear on the senses of German prepositions as I am on German pronouns.)

Still, way cool.
