Fakes On A Train

I tried to get a photo of the young men from Ivory Coast who stand on the train platforms with open briefcases full of counterfeit watches, but when their sentry saw me aim my camera, he shouted, "Mbuala a'fahti!", which is Yaoure for "That fat guy has a camera!" and they all snapped their cases shut and began chatting about the Yankees. I only wanted the picture so I could make the above headline joke before all the funny is used up from the movie title. Sigh.
