  1. Here's a nice Afrikaans saying for you:
    'n Grap is 'n grap, maar jy maak nie 'n sambreel oop in 'n man se gat nie.

    It translates to 'a joke is a joke, but you shouldn't open an umbrella in a guy's hole'.
  2. Yeah, it's pretty much a dumbed down version of Dutch. The pronounciation is probably closer to Germany though. Sounds like you're clearing your throat to spit.
  3. that's "schreeuw" it means scream
    "lelijk" as in ugly.

    so yeah Afrikaans almost the same as in Suriname's "sranang tongo" or Curacao "papiamento"
  4. Um. You do know that not all South Africans speak Afrikaans?
    Anyways, it's an aimless languange - but it has some cool words like 'skreeulelik'. It means the person was so ugly that you screamed when you saw them.
  5. so...
    why the word Touw-broekie?
    so you south -afrikaan can't come up with a better word?
  6. We win. I brought cake.
  7. Huh, whut?

  8. yeah...
