Frackin' Friday

Guten Tag!

I knew you couldn't resist Frackin' Friday and another chance to learn some good naughty German words.

If you missed last weeks, you'll find the recap here.

I had to rack my brain for today's entry. I wanted something raunchy, but not too terrible. I might have to save a really bad one for another time. :)

So, this one won't get you in nearly as much trouble as the last one might have, but it is still fun to say.

(pronounced: Tz-ick-ey, but said fast, all together, kinda like sicky with a 'z')

or, how I like to say it "Zicke, Zicke!"

You say it when someone is being witchy, or testy. Not necessarily like calling someone a bia, but more so something you might say to your friend when she is having one of those days. It literally comes from the german name for a female goat. 

"For my lovely Zicke" Might be the most romantic balloon...ever. (source)
So, next time you think someone is giving you lip for no reason, don't do the oh-so-lame, oh-so-90's cat 'meow/raaaawr' (do people really still do that!?).

Confuse them and cut them down all at once with a simple "Zicke, Zicke!".

Hope ya'll are all having a great Friday! We have nothing too much planned for the weekend, just banging it out playoff style :)

Oh, and one other quick thing. Rachel from a Life So Lovely featured me today on her Future Friday feature this week. If you have a chance, stop over there and read a more 'serious' side of me!

  1. haha..female goat! Im totally gonna use this word when I come to Frankfurt on

  2. Forget pms, loving the random! Look out superstar, congrats on the feature, well said. Have a fantabulous weekend.

  3. Female goat, eh? I need something stronger, something that I can hurl at the beast of all sister-out-law!

    She is beyond b*tchy, passed testy years ago...she's a shrike, the devil personified who wouldn't know Prada if it hit her in the head.

    How about something for a female Rhino, Hippo or even Gorilla?

    Go ahead and please...make my day!

    Friday smiles,


  4. lol.... i love learning new words :) There are some swedish ones that sound raunchy to an english speaking person.. but really mean simple things. haha

  5. @Mrs k - haha, yes, you should totally use it!
    @Morgan - lol, too funny. Glad you liked it, and you started calling me my true name...superstar! haha, jk
    @Adventures - thanks!
    @Patty - ouch, you definitely need a better word then! I will try to come up with one for ya :)
    @Laura - don't you love those words. There are a few in German too that would sound so bad if they were English!

  6. This is great! I'll have to whip it out on Monday at work when people have a case of the "mondays" haha.

  7. Awesome! I might provoke someone into being rude just so I can use it.

    And 'raaaawr'? That one made me LOL! Too bad no one uses it anymore - it has it's charm.

  14. I always liked that Goats were associated with Capricorns. Zicke Zicke Zicke! Oh lay!!!

  15. Too funny! I wonder if that means goats get temperamental when they are "in season" or "in heat"? I rode horses as a kid and female horses can be quite the B when they are in season :)
