“I like coffee” in Welsh…

“Hoffi coffi?”

“Dw i ddim yn hoffi coffi”*

“I don’t like coffee”

*(Pronounced “Dwee thim in hoffi coffi”, with the ‘th’ sounding like the ‘th’ in ‘the’…)

In English "I like tea"

Hmmm, interesting. I wonder if there is some kind of connection somewhere – it could be why all the Dutchies like coming to Wales. That and the hills.

Other funny Welsh words:

Pump (pronounced ‘pimp’), is the number five. This always gets a chuckle from Ms MOBIUS when she’s waiting in line at the shops…

Plant – Children

Smwthio (pronounced ‘smoothio’) – ironing. I guess literally to make smooth.

Popty ping – Microwave. Literally the oven that goes ‘ping’.:lol: Or, boringly, ‘microdon’…

Did you know that "Welcome to Wales" in Welsh is "Creosote a Gimp".

Just for clarification, the afrikaans i posted actually means 'coffee, gayboy?'

I knew that because I think you must have posted it before? Still was hoping you'd get MOBIUS punched by some South African at some point...

Next time anyone sees MOBIUS I hope they ask him:

"hoffi coffi moffie?"

and the second question would be: and How are your snails doing?
