    Smile get some

    Hello. Would you tell me what 'Get some' means in this context?
    I understand it's sort of insulting phrase, but please tell me what it means in this context below. Thank you.


    Every man has his breaking point, For me it was when I found the piece of paper taped to my little sister's back that said, Boobies: Get some.
    Who knows how long she'd been walking around with it stuck back there?

    Not a teacher

    As you will probably know, boobies mean woman's breasts

    I think the intention behind it is to make it look like
    the sister is inviting boys to come and get them (and then some).

    No, I'm sorry, that is the wrong interpretation.

    The sister didn't know someone had taped it to her back. It was done as a cruel joke. Apparently the sister is still rather flat chested and the sign is telling her she needs to develop more.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    That's what I meant. The bully wanted to make it look like the sister is inviting boys to come and take advantage of her boobs without her knowledge, making her look like a slut.

    However, as far as the meaning of the phrase is concerned, I stand corrected.

    Barb explained the meaning.
