'Trời ơi'

 

'Trời ơi' meaning ‘oh my god’ or ‘oh heavens’ is an extremely popular term in Vietnamese. So much so that if you were to go to any crowded place and listen for a short while you are likely to hear it being said.

In this image I have made a play on the words by taking its literal meaning to show a man in the sky. He isn’t bothered, just enjoying life on a cloud with a cup of tea.
