    Eh?

    Can someone tell me what this means? One of my Russian penpals used it as a closing in an email she wrote me.

    what's the root for "best"? I have a poster that says
    "лучших сосок"

    that I understand means "The Best (rubber) Nipples"


    Also, why "наилучшими"?

    I guess it was pretty popular during the Soviet system. There were loads of such posters in the 1920s. Lots of them were invented by Mayakovsky. Do you know this Soviet poet? He was pretty popular at the time.

    OK. Don't forget to check when you get home! I think you can find a lot of his posters on the web.

    BTW, does anyone know when the poster about 'соски' was first displayed?
