    Maybe "МЕНЯ РВЁТ"? It means "I am throwing up"...

    I agree with the previous posts. I think Меня Рвёт could also mean "Меня разрывает" (от из музыки). Thus, рвёт doesn't mean "to barf, vomit"

    Yes, indeed! On the painting there's something infront of the first letter of the second word, hiding it. After you mentioned it, I looked again and indeed, it spells: "МЕНЯ РВЁТ". So does that mean I am throwing up or not? Thank you so much guys!

    If he had provided the artwork, it would of been a piece of cake to get the true meaning.

    Artwork is a kind of context. Lack of context renders it more fun.

    Oh, I thought you were being ironic! Yes, it IS truly fun to guess the umpteen various solutions to one problem that could have been easily solved with one more nanogram of information!

    Actually, no, I was not being ironic, I was being sarcastic.

    Well, to be sarcastic one has to be ironic, so we both win.
