Son, I am fuck.Aunt and Uncle just left and we had a hearty laugh talking about stuff yesterday with the family.
Apparently in India what one of the old "traditions" for men seeking women is that men would seek out certain families, go visit their houses and they would be treated to sweets and Bhaji/Bajji:
Fried fritters with various vegetables/aka the indian version of tempura.
Meanwhile the prospective girl would be made to show off her talents while the prospective groom would eat sweets and bajji and get entertained.
Honestly, what I said was "Wtf is this, slave trade?". And my parents and family are not all about that, even if they are very traditional, so they were just saying it to make fun of it.
HOWEVER. Bajji has to be my all time most favorite snack/appetizer/thing to stuff my mouth with in my entire life. There is nothing else that will compare. As soon as I found out about this age-old tradition I grabbed my uncle's hand and I was like "cmon let's go, the girls' families must be waiting".
Also yesterday we ended up watching a bollywood movie that only lasted 1.5 hours!
And I learned that "Phakra" or "Phak" (pronounced similar to "Fuck") means "pride". So technically "Fuck you" means "I'm proud of you".
FUCK YOU FINALGEAR!
Huh, so it's like clubbing meets American Idol.Yeah, that's what they said. If the girl can dance/sing/play the sitar etc. she would be made to do that while the family sit there proud and gleaming, hoping the groom will be entertained enough/admire her talents enough to choose her. It's like going through someone's CV except more retarded.
I'm thinking Morris Marina owner* and member of MMOC.nah if he wants to complain. he can complain to the BBC. i'm sending it back to him saying "your homework for today is to use a feature available on most computers and websites called spellcheck. send it back to me when i don't need to decode your message."
I didn't see anything wrong with it until I read that he spelled badly and went back to check. I've been on an internet too long.nah if he wants to complain. he can complain to the BBC. i'm sending it back to him saying "your homework for today is to use a feature available on most computers and websites called spellcheck. send it back to me when i don't need to decode your message."
You have been sigged buddy, be fuck of your celebrity.Son, I am fuck.
Yes but with more facial hair. Both.Huh, so it's like clubbing meets American Idol.
I have not, but that sounds like an amusing movieLP, have you heard of the movie Blind Dating? (All this talk of Indian culture got me thinking about it.) It has Chris Pine (new Captain Kirk) in it. He's a blind man who falls in love with an Indian woman without knowing she's Indian and promised to another man. I personally love the movie and I usually hate movies with any sort of romance in them :lol:
I'm going to make a few educated, serious guesses:*non-sensical comment about Nazi Torchwood*
Speak an accent from the UK and I will probably be correct in guessing it's region. To me, it is fascinating on how the dialects are like lines in the dirt.I would hazard a guess that the average Brit would know more American slang than an American would know British, as it seems you are exposed to more of our media than we are to yours.
