Jou ma se ouma-grootjie se tottie se punt: All I can say is that this is a devastating insult.  Buggedout Buggedout

Tried Googling that. First result I found was the print-friendly version of this thread.

It means "your mother's great-grandmother was a hermaphrodite"  and the 'Punt' part of it refers to the tip of a male organ (tottie)  Buggedout Buggedout TeddyR

I used to say I live my life a quarter mile at a time and I think that's why we were brothers- because you did, too. No matter where you are, whether it's a quarter mile away or half way across the world. The most important thing in life will always be the people in this room. Salute mi familia. You'll always be with me... And you'll always be my brother.

And considering how often you say you change your underwear, probably the most overused word in the Afrikaans. "Vrot!"

Next phrase: "I am Groot!" as per BrotherAkira's thread.

This translates to Afrikaans as Ek Is Groot [grew-wert]: meaning I am big.  TeddyR

Word of the day: poephol [poop-hall]

The greatest compliment you could ever give a South African.  Wink

Not really, it means "a-hole": poep meaning fart and hol meaning hole, in other words, fart hole.

 Buggedout Buggedout

Oy, I be so busted.

I had to google the word hamburger and see what is the Afrikaans word for it: the answer is hamburger - there is no Afrikaans word for it. Strange: a hot dog is "worsbroodjie" (sausage bread) but no word for hamburger.  TeddyR TeddyR

So that phrase translated is 'Een hamburger en 'n bier".  Drink

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
