They took these down? This ad is GREAT! And I don't even need to know what the line reads.

....What does the line say?

Dabitch's picture

Oh, sorry.

The line reads sortof [bear with me, my russian is terrible] - "The magazine about making money" - you can read it as This is how you make (more) money"

so hey, the line is good too. ;)
