Default SU french script Background stamp

Does anyone have ant idea what is says? It's a great background but for all we know it could say "hey my friend you stink" and meanwhile some of us are using it.

My girlfriend and I made up an absolutely hilarious translation for it. We've always wondered too.

Default translation

This if from the SU website:

What is the translation of the French Script background stamp?

The words on the stamp are taken from a French poem by Victor Hugo, ‚ÄúSince Flowering May.‚Ä? We are unable to print the English translation in its entirety because of possible copyright infringement of the translation, but you can get a sense of the mood from a few of the lines, printed below: ‚ÄúSince flowering May calls us from the meadows, come! . . . and let the radiance of all nature bring out, like a double blossoming flower, the beauty on your brow and the love in your heart."


Hope that helps!

I had seen a translation somewhere...I think it may have been on the SU website...it was a while ago. It wasn't a full translation but the idea of what it said came across (unfortunately I can't remember if it was about love, friendship or what...but I know it didn't tell anyone that they stink!).

Maybe we have someone who knows French on this site who can clue us in a little better.

"hey my friend you stink" what a riot, I just busted out laughing and my coworkers are wondering what is so funny. The first thing that came to my mind was a card that has the script as the background, with a stamped "peppy le' pew!" (cartoon skunk) on the front, using the brush end of a marker making a swipe to look like the smell/aroma floating up. Ok, so I've babbled on of what my image was, there probably isnt another stamping soul out there who can picture this poor description!! Anyway, Thanks for the laugh! Have a great day!
