    What does it mean or...

    Hello,
    got a question: Could I say: "What is that mean?", cos I think I have heard it a few times. Next: What does "brough in bulk on popular package holidays overseas" mean?

    Hi, theboss,
    No, that's wrong. You must have misheard it. What does that mean?
    As to your 2nd question, could you give all the sentence? You've got some typos, I think.

    All right, thx :)
    ok the whole sentence is: "Mind-bending drugs like heroin, bought in bulk on popular package holidays overseas, are being peddled all over the country."

    Hi,
    It means somebody goes overseas as a tourist and brings back a large amount of drugs which are then sold in his country.
    Cheers

    A "package" holiday (we say vacation in the US) is a trip that is sold as a complete package including the travel to your destination (airplane, boat, bus, train) and hotel accomodations. Some holiday packages also include restaurant meals, rental cars, guided tours, and entertainment.

    So if they are bought on popular..... so it is that I buy it there (at the destination point) or with the package? :) (feel dizzy about the last option)

    When people are speaking quickly and not very carefully, you will hear:

    Whatuhs that mean? (slurring of what doea that mean)

    or

    Whats that mean? (not the same as what's, but the same sound)

    Neither are correct.
