It is true that the english phrase "fuck off" offers an overwhelming feeling of fullfilment every time it is uttered. FUCK OFF. Simply brilliant.

However in Greek there are also a myriad of very compeling phrases.

One of those is (loosely translated): "I write you to my balls".

One can forgive the initial bewilderment of a non native greek speaker when confronted with such a sentence.

Its core meaning is that you don't give a damn what the other person is saying.

For speed purposes the phrase is very often curtailed to simply: "to my balls". And this is because while the verb is missing from that sentence, the specific direction remains crystal clear. Hence the message looses nothing of its semantic potency.

I was talking to me girlfriend about something and I commented that we should write the opinion of certain people to our balls.

She replied that she doesn't have any and if it's alright she could use mine to write it to.

I accepted and she proceeded in commenting on how fond she was of my balls. I informed her of their sincere mutual feeling.

Why am I writing this?

I have no idea.

It's always good to learn about foreign swear words/slang like this.

I think Venom commanding "TO MY BALLS!!" is something only previously heard by the crack whores of North Carolina.

I want more foreign swear words!!

i like to use them as screen names. You can get away with alot. No respectable site allows you to use profanity in your screen name. :(. So at once site I use the screen name of ficken. According to my translated rammstein lyrics it means fuck. Is this correct? And are there different contexts of fuck like in English? Can it be used in a derogatory manner? Or is it just used in a sexual connotation?

Dear sir,

I'm writing you
TO MY BALLS!!!


I think Italians, or at least american italians also have the same expression. But they show it, don't say it.

Well, "Fick dich" means "fuck you" or "fuck yourself", but it's much less used than in english.

For a painful variant, I suggest: "Fick dich ins Knie", ie "fuck your knee (and break your willie trying)".

edit: Dyl answered that

die Fotze means cunt. Das ist eine tolle fotze means "that's a wonderful cunt" and is a way of saying a girl is attractive that's pretty offensive both in terms of language and sexism.

I guess the german version of the Diss approach to women would be "Hallo, du geile Fotze!"

Drekkus
23-03-2007, 10:44:27
But he would probably pronounce it fotzie, which makes it kind of cute

Dyl Ulenspiegel

"Hello you gellie fotzie" would leave most women :drekkus:, I suppose....

That's probably terrible German. heiß means hot, but I've got no idea if they use it in german as slang for attractive. They do use it as slang for horny though so I think it means where did the other waitress go, she was horny...

Dyl Ulenspiegel
23-03-2007, 11:05:45
Is used for attractive, too.

The phrase to my balls is also accompagnied by a movement sometimes. Don't have broadband at present so I cant check the link but you unite your palms and show your balls when saying it. Like saying "here you go"

I'm with a girl for a couple of months now. It's a pretty good situation... She suffers me and I'm not mean anymore. We share the same values although we have grown up in completely different ways. Go figure.

Like, I have travelled the world over, she never left Greece.
I don't swear I'm pretty reserved. She swears and is very extrovert. I'm very progressive/ liberal and live in that fashion, she is too but lives in a different fashion. Lots of differences but somehow we care for eachother and we clicked. There is a calmness, an understanding and an affection that I was not accustomed to. Even me changing locations is not a deterrent. Whatever happens is not a deterrent. We both fear that for some reason we'll break up. Our favorite phrase is "when you'll break up with me..." but it doesn't seem to happen. I hope it will last a long time and I think she does to. We'll see but I am optimist for the first time I can remember myself after a long time.
Oh yes. And there are no fights. Pretty strange. But good.

Suffer can mean to tolerate/allow as well as the pain kind of thing. eg. I do not suffer fools gladly.

Drekkus

Don't explain things like that. The expression 'she suffers me' is brilliant. It's short for 'she suffers from my actions and all other stupid things I do'.

Funko
