アイルランドの土を米国で売るビジネス

アイルランドの土を米国で売り、ひと山当てようとしているビジネスマンがいます。そんなのもの、誰が買うのでしょうか?

さっそく、ニューヨークカーから 10万ドル(約1,200万円)分の注文が入ったようです。何に使うのでしょう?

Their market is American Irish descendants who want a handful of the mother country scattered over their graves.
「彼らのターゲットは、アイルランド系移民の子孫。墓の上に祖国の土をまきたい、というニーズに応えようとしている」

この注文主の場合は、墓土をすべてアイルランドの土にするつもりなのでしょう。

誰でもできそうですが、決して簡単ではありません。

One of them has patented a way of processing the soil so it passes US import rules on disease and non-indigenous insects.
「土壌処理法について特許を取得。この処理法により、病原菌や外来種の昆虫の侵入阻止を目的とした米国の輸入規制もパスできる」

1キロ約5千円也。
米国のアイルランド系住民は約4千万人。マーケットは大きそうです。


今日のワンポイント
倒置に注意

否定語などが強調で前に出ると、倒置が起きるので注意しましょう。
We knew it would take off but not in our wildest dreams did we expect the reaction we've had so far.
(元の形は we didn't expect the reaction we've had so far in our wildest dreams)
「うまくいくとは思ってたけど、ここまで反響が大きいとは夢にも思わなかった」

タイトルの「It's a Dirty Business」dirt(土)とdirty(きたない、というか商魂たくましいというのか)をかけてるんですね。英語はこういうところがおもしろいです♪

miki さん、こんにちは。たしかにオシャレなタイトルが多いです。日本のスポーツ紙や夕刊大衆紙の非常に苦しいダジャレとはかなりちがいますね。でもそういうのも好きです!

テンポウさん、こんにちは。甲子園の土も高そうですね。球児がオークションで売ってたりして・・・私はさらに baseborn でお米と比べてしまいますね。魚沼産コシヒカリのなんと10倍!!

My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net
from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on various websites for
about a year and am worried about switching to another platform.

Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
