…about nothing in particular 😉
Actually, that’s the first phrase in The Zompist Phrasebook. I have been looking for lists of common phrases in other languages – German, French and Spanish in particular, and this one came to me as a surprise.
Among the better ones –
- There’s a corpse on the bed. Please change the sheets.
- That’s not all! I have two more photo albums!
- Where can I rent a camel? and
- One order of fermé le mercredi, please.
Of course, fermé le mercredi means Closed Wednesdays. I will recommend that you visit the page, just for the sheer fun in reading the Intellectual exchanges section – you might need a translator for it, but you should get the jist.
This also brings up Monty Python – particuarily the Hungarian Phrasebook Sketch – take a read through if you hadn’t before 😉
