Buying Lithuanian

The readers of Delfi have chosen a quotation of the year. I think it's worth exposing to a larger audience.

Maybe a drumroll isn't necessary, however. Here it is: "Aš laikausi šūkio 'pirk prekę lietuvišką', bet perku ją Lenkijoje. Ten lietuviškos prekės vos ne per pusę pigesnės."

My translation: "I support the slogan 'buy Lithuanian products', but I buy them in Poland. There Lithuanian products are about half the price". Hmm. I'll leave others to explain why that is.
