CHE BELLO learns Turkish.

March 1, 2008 at 4:35 pm (Saturday Sayings) (, , )

This week’s Saturday Saying comes to us from GobbleGobbleLand and is used to describe awkward actions, the motives behind which are unknown. Bayram degil, seyran degil. Eniste, beni niye optu? The pronunciation is fairly straightforward and rather entertaining ((don’t tell me you don’t giggle when you say nee-yay op-too)), but not as entertaining as the rough translation of this phrase: “It’s not festival time, it’s not vacation. So why did my brother-in-law just kiss me?”
