Recently my best friend’s other best friend (sidenote: whenever I write something like this I always think of the ecard that says ‘That moment when you hear someone else call your best friend their best friend and you are like…no’. That’s not us though, nothing but love every girl needs a blonde and brunette bestie) posted an article from Chai and Conversation on her facebook wall and it inspired me to dig a little deeper into translating some funnies from my very beautiful and funny second language. Definitely visit the link above because there are some classics in there, but here are some other gems.
1. Popcorn – Chohs-e-feel
I’m sure your thinking ‘Ok, how weird could this translation be?’. Well the direct translation is an elephants silent fart.
2. I miss you – Delam tang shod
Translation: My stomach is tight for you
3. Strawberry – tootfarangi
Translation: Foreign berry
Apparently they didn’t have strawberries in old Persia
