I Heart BJ

We thought it was a naughty and entertaining play on the “I heart NY” t-shirts when we saw the “I heart BJ” chotchkes being hawked to tourists. But I was more curious when I saw some locals wearing it. I wonder if they know what the acronym means in English. I didn’t take it upon myself to explain it to this lady. The pantomime, necessary because of my lacking language skills, would have been too humiliating for all.
