Frackin' Friday

Do the Frackin' Friday happy dance!
(now try to get 'The Hustle' tune out of your head...sorry!)

In case you really DID want to Do The Hustle (source)
I hope everyone had a great week, and that you have some fun plans for the weekend. And if not, then sit back and relax. After a long week, bloggyland, you deserve it.

You also deserve to know one of my favorite German words.

I will say, that this one isn't as bad as the others. Really, it isn't even a cuss word at all. But when used correctly, can still cut to the core!

Today's Frackin' Friday word:

Lächerlich
(pronounced Layker-leek)
Meaning: Ridiculous or Ridic!

As in, 'Du bist Lächerlich': You are ridiculous!

So yeah, not really a bad word, per se. But can still be useful.

Need a few examples?!

"Yo man, were you drunk when you got that? Your tattoo is lächerlich!"
(source)


"Even though she is lächerlich, I still respect what Lady Gaga is doing...sometimes"
(source)


"I bet the amount of food he gets stuck in that thing is lächerlich"
(source)


And my favorite
"Ref, you called that a penalty?!?! Du bist lächerlich und peinlich!" 
(ah, there is a new one in there for ya)
(source)

So bloggyland, I hope this was helpful. Call out those lächerlich people this weekend. 

And have a lächerlich good time doing so :)

  1. Mornin'....I'd write a more lengthy comment but I'm looking through my closet for my lächerlich Disco dress; going out tomorrow evening for some Saturday Night Fever.

    You just HAD to go there, didn't you?

    :))))))

  6. Thanks for that. You can call people 'Doylem' if you want. It is a Yorkshire slang word for idiot. Unfortunately I work shifts so no weekends for me. Just thought I'd wallow in self-pity.

  12. Hey oh!! Happy Friday to you! I totally fell off of electroland trying to rest up and got caught up with some friendly antibiotics/pain killers so it's going to take me ALL weekend to get an L fix of frackin funtimes!

    So I'm loving how totally ridic Gaga is and all of her outfits which they totally are...did you see her condom inspired one? Where does she come up with this stuff? Lovin' it! And btw, you could not pay me to put the face of some batshit crazy person on my body :)

    Have a super fantabulous weekend.

  13. @Tony - boo you have to work! And I love that word! I am thinking about taking suggestions for cuss words in other languages, so this might just be perfect for that! haha.
    @Mac - you know it :) I am trying to spread some German word love! haha
    @Heather - I never was a cool kid :( lol
    @Miko's - what a sweet comment, I am glad you liked it!
    @Meg - don't lie....that is your husband in the picture! haha
    @Katie - of course! And oh, good use of the word. Twice in one sentence. Gold star for you!
    @Morgan - hey there! I was missing you :) I hope you are feeling better! I am not a big gaga fan, but I do appreciate it that she puts it all on the line...even if that line is way weird, lol. And that tat, so horrible, so bad. Hope you have a great weekend too!

  14. The hustle looks hilarious. That beard trying to pretend it's a mustache is amazing. If I could, I would totally grow my own and join the circus. I would travel with the lions and we would be best friends. They'd let me use them as pillows when I slept without gnawing on my noggin. Then I'd sit on a stool all day while people paid to see the bearded mustache lady. The lions would comfort me at night when I cried my big tears because people always gasped when they saw me and I only ever wanted a friend but my beard kept everyone at a distance. And so my only friends were lions.

    Okay, I think I'm done here.

  15. I love to watch Judge Judy but there is no way I would get a tattoo of her. Well I wouldn't get a tattoo of anything to be honest.
    New words are always fun.

  16. Funny you bring up this word today, I called my mother last night to complain about how lächerlich expensive the fish is in swiss supermarkets (yeap, I just love fish and hate it when I get charged the same price as in restaurants in Spain for something that I still need to cook!).
    Have a great weekend!

  17. @Heather - well you rock too! Have a great weekend :)
    @Jordan - Best. Comment. Ever. Haha, this is awesome. Love the rambles.
    @Bernie - yeah, no kidding. I don't care how much I love something! That this really is too much.
    @Katherina - Yikes! I know how expensive things can be in Switzerland! Hope you had a great fish dinner anyways :)

  26. @Meri - !!!!! Best one yet. How did I not include that one!?! haha.
    @debbie - well, no offense, but since your name is debbie, not only would it be uncomfortable on your face, I think you would look pretty weird with that mustache beard too, haha, jk. Have a good one!
    @nabo - well glad I could supply you with one more :)
    @kimberly - perfect! What a fun word to use with them. They will love/hate it, haha.

    @dakotad - well thanks! I appreciate the nice words :)
    @ixy - it is fun to just say over and over. Man, we are all going to be cussing up a storm over in North America and no one will know what hit them. Love it!
    @Rachel - Haha, mine too, mine too. I wonder if we can just shorten the word to lächer, just like ridic. Might try that one!
    @Laura - Haha, oh my gosh, if he could grow one like that, you better let him keep it. Or at least do a blog post on it before he shaves it, haha. Hope ya'll are still doing well in playoffs and you have a great weekend too!

  31. I love these.
    I "looked cute" with the help of a much-needed shower and some makeup. I was determined to go to that concert, I paid for the tickets a couple months ago! I definitely felt the effects after the concert though.

    I hope you have a good weekend!
