Hey! Happy Friday!

I am being lazy and late posting this afternoon. And no, it is not because of the margaritas from Cinco de Mayo. Someone had to be responsible last night, and I drew the short straw. Man, I hate being a grown up and being all "rational". Sucky.

:)

So, it is Friday and you know what that means...Frackin' Friday!!!

But before I rattle of some good German cuss word, I want to extend an invitation to any and all of my readers. Do you think you have a good foreign or funny curse word that you would like to share??? I figured that I could
somewhat keep up with the German ones while I am back at home, but I also want to hear if you have any juicy, secret bad words. 

Come on, show me what you got!!
If you are interested in submitted your word and being featured on Frackin' Friday, shoot me an email at: TexaGermaNadian (at) gmail (dot) com.

Come on, you know you have at least one up your sleeve! lol

So, onto the word o' the day.

I heard this one a lot in the last few weeks we were in Germany. And I heard it quite often, so I know it is used  regularly. But I was around those foul-mouthed hockey boys, so what do I really know?! :)
Verpiss dich!
(Ver-piss deechk, a little hard on that -chk sound on the end)

It means "Eff off", "Piss off" or "Screw you". I guess it could be pretty vulgar if used correctly, but most of the time it is used between friends when they are ragging on you or getting on your nerves.

Ummmmmm, how in the world did I miss this awesome, mid-90's, all girl German rap group!??! That CD looks awesome. Might have to see if I can pick me up a copy. And you know that they are just badass, I mean the name of their album says it all! Haha

You are lucky that I love you all and none of you are deserving of a verpiss dich today :) Have a great rest of the day, enjoy it up nicely. And I hope that you don't have to use today's Frackin' Friday word. But if you do, you are armed and ready to go!!!

Hey, and make sure to check back this weekend for another post on my fabulous German goodies give away. I am excited for it, and I think you might like it too!

  2. lol, doesn't that band look like Salt & Peppa? I totally thought it was them at first glance but they're no where close to being that bad ass. I only remember a few things from German class "Ich Hasse Dich" and I think I've learned more from your blog than I remember from 3 years of German lessons.

  5. I'm going to have to add your site to my post on "learning German" sites--I think I am more likely to remember the words I learn here than on the others! I'm with Irish-Italian Blessing...totally reminds me of Salt-n-Pepa, except I think S-n-P didn't have that "Verpiss dich" look on their faces.

  6. @Oilfield - you too!! :)
    @HW - haha, oh yeah, this one will definitely come in handy, lol
    @An Irish - I thought that too! lol. Haha, 'I hate you" good one! Isn't it funny how you always remember the bad words :)
    @Lesley - haha, it does kind of sound bad, but like I said, they use it softly. Glad you like!
    @Wendy - I would LOVE to hear your Tex-Mex words, that would be hilarious. Well, if you reconsider, email me!
    @Jan - haha, awesome. But it might get you in trouble for sure! They do look awful verpisst off, don't they!

  7. That's the first thing I thought when I saw that album..."oh my god, she should totally buy that!!!" :D

  8. I try very hard to not curse, but my fall back is to call someone a turd instead of an a**hole. It's pretty descriptive. And when I am really mad, I use Yosemite Sam type exclamations like "dabnabit" or "confoundit." I've been known to say, "Rats," too and that gets my kids' attention. (I teach 4th.)

    Quite the potty mouth, eh?

  9. I love that "piss" is in the swear.

  13. LOVE Frackin' Friday!!

    The English translations are some of my favorite "curses," so I'm going to have to start using the German version just for a little variety. Can't wait to see what curses people submit...this should be interesting!

  15. That album is quite a find! I might have to google them to sample their little ditties :) I mean really, how often do you hear female German rappers?

    As usual, I love the German lesson ;)

  18. German swear words always sound great! Something about the German accent does it! Plus they brought all their Anglo-Saxon cuss words to England!

  19. I had to use it... I used it when I dropped my frackin' bed on my FOOT! Ugh... that darn thing is huge. I was moving it because I am finally getting RID of it thank goodness - but they call the darn thing a "Paul Bunyan Bed" for a reason! Good riddance! It had to leave me with one last bruise however...

  23. I'm from Germany and back when I still lived with my roommate (about a year and a half ago) we would say "verpiss dich" when we were really surprised by something. You know, as in GTFO!

    Now that I'm living in the States all I ever hear is "F++k" and although I love to say it, I feel like there's a lack of good cussing words in the English language. Hmpf.

Whoomp, there it is!
