finally it's freakin' friday :)~

this is why we don't speak dutch in south africa...



certain words the dutch use as normal ordinary words means totally different things here in SA... this newspaper clipping from a dutch paper just proves that point...


translation:

poes = oer... nasty word that's used by very common people, poes is a really ugly word that refers to female genitalia in a extremely derogative way... if you call someone a poes you should really expect to be knocked to the ground with immediate effect... and then kicked some...

doos... another nasty word but more commonly used... generally means "idiot"... example: i felt like such a doos... or you are such a doos!


in english the caption reads:

Scared cat found in box...
hey hey it's Friday! hope you have a great one, I'll be off to the Oktoberfest tonight... drinking yucky german beer and screaming prost every 5 minutes... should be fun, it always is :)
auf wederzein en al daai lekker dinge!

Never mind the proper English translation of it it's really funny even if you didn't know that - am I the only person that thought about "poo poos" and "doo doos"?! ... "Bange poo poos and doo doos give it!" Oh come on guys you're making me look bad now! :-(

Mwahaha love the way you find this stuff. I was married to a p@#s and a d&%s (2 husbands) lol. Enjoy the beer. Will there be frauleins with low cut national dress and steins of gross foamy beer? Sounds like a jol..watch out for cats and boxes though they'll take advantage of you if you get likkered up chicka.
