I got peeved earlier and I blurted out the word "CRAP!" Then I gots ta thinkin'...

How to say "CRAP" in various languages:
-----------------------------------------------

English : Crap

Spanish : EL Crapo

German : Krapen

Russian : Krapishka

Italian : Crapino

Polish : Krapowksi

French : Crapevou

Arabic : Al Kra-pah

Japanese : Krapashiki

Greek : Krapolopolous?
( I know that one sucked, but that's the best I could come up with)

Oh yeah, and...

Canada : Crap Eh?

That's all I could come up with. But I believe this session of time wasting was more fruitful than others...did I leave any out?

In British Sign Language (at least some dialects of it) you take your right hand and you jam it under your left arm and up to your armpit.

Hard to describe...

Aha! I just remembered the French for poo poo!

Its, wait for it, Kaka.

Also, we have 'Cack' in English, which is remarkably similar to the Dutch and the French.

On a completely unrelated note, Zizi is French for Willy.

Just thought I'd share that.

JERUSALEM, Israel (AP) - In response to Israel's denial of water to the West Bank, HAMAS released three cheetahs in West Jerusalem, where they went on a killing spree, mauling four Jews and injuring thirteen.

TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) - Following a cheetah attack on West Jerusalem perpetrated by the majority HAMAS party, the Israeli Air Force retaliated by detonating twenty kiloton nuclear devices over Gaza City, Jenin, Nablus, Rafah, and Ramallah.

ASHDOD, Israel (AP) - As a result of the atomic bombings of five Palestinian cities, a 50-foot tall reptile has woken from its million-year slumber in the Mediterranean Sea. The monster has made landfall at Ashdod and obliterated the city. Eyewitnesses report that the monster left the destroyed city heading southeast.

I'm glad Wytukaze...then it was all worth it. My insane and normally useless time wasting has enriched others and taught me something new...

Just when I thought I could not possibly lose any more screws...I do something good.

Oh yeah..."Crapola". I thought of this but couldn't figure out what language it would be. Portuguese? Nah...maybe

Yugoslavian? No...that would be "Crapii"...I think...two i's or two a's...I can't remember

Don't try to write this stuff when you don't have real cream for your coffee. I swear this Coffeemate is rat poison...

No...it's not random at all! I was going to change my user name to "Idomeneo" and proclaim myself "King of Crete"! It's a delightful coincidence...besides...

If it's not Scotish...IT'S CRAAP!!!!! (which I believe is how it's pronounced)

'Garbage' or 'Trash' in Spanish is Basura... It's a clean form of Cr*P or Sh*t, as well... if upset, you can say, "Ay, Basura!" try it. it's fun!

And 'Pedo' means 'Fart'... blink.gif
