"Dvokotačno međunožno guralo" would translate as "two-wheel between-leg pusher".


Commuter is "vozač" in Slovenian (don't mistake for "voznik", which means a driver).

You know that joke:

A bunch of nuns is riding a bicycle through forest. After a while, the main one tells the others: "All right girls, enough pleasure, put your seats back on".

Go out for a few hours and Slavic breaks out....

I could have bought an orange T-shirt that said KNVB on it, had I been so inclined (and I bet I'd have been the only one in the store who knew what it meant). But I didn't.

One advice: never accept a ride from cinxxx on the Autobahn. He has quite a heavy right foot.

The engine was also roaring very loud.

Overtaking another car, while travelling at 250 km/h is no big deal these days...

Overtaking at 340 km/h on the other hand........

Finally, a new president was appointed today. I am still little doubtful towards him, but it is much much much better than the previous one, who was elected in two 5-years long terms. Andrej Kiska, our new president is the first independent president in Slovakia ever. Hope, he will fulfil his promises.

The leaving one, Ivan Gasparovic, probably suffers of Alzhaimer and had some popular bloops. I tried to translate some remarkable ones to illustrate, how stupid our previous president of 10 years was:

1. I will respond by two words: Yes, you are right.
2. Are you illiterate? It is noted in the law by white on black! (response to reporter's question about some law).
3. They could have had fun. But the fun will be different. It will be sadness. (official reaction on Slovak army plane crash flying from Kosovo to Slovakia, where 43 soldiers died).
4. I was on about 400 days long trip around Slovakia, which is almost one year.
5. Let me open this year Peace marathon by saying the ordinary proverb: Honour to the Winners, Glory to the Losers.
6. We have to discuss some questions leading to the stabilization of Western Balcony... .... ehrmm... Balkan. (sk. Balcony = Balkón, Balkan = Balkán)
7. I've had a great time on Serbian seaside
8. Organizácia spojených nádorov.... názorov.... ehm národov (literally: The United Tumours... Opinions.... Nations)
9. According to the Treaty of Libanon
10. The new pope, Dominik XIV.
11. On the other hand I think, that Slovakia sometimes unfortunately, but sometimes it is fortunately, that unfortunately, that there is still cheap labour force in Slovakia and it is fortunately cheaper in past years.
12. The respective article is not against the Constitution! It collides only with three articles thereof.

He is gone since today. Fortunately, that unfortunately fortunately

It would take a long time to translate in English the Berlusconi's compilation but it would be funny.

Silvio Berlusconi best quotations:

- After 9/11: "We must be proud of our civility superior to Arabians."
- 2003, to the German politician Martin Shultz: "In Italy we are making a film about nazi concentration camps, you're suitable to the role of kapo."
-"In Italy people make jokes about the holocaust because we can joke about tragedies to overcome them."
- During Iraqi war: "Mussolini, unlikely Saddam Hussein, never killed anybody, just sent people on holiday at the confino." (The "confino" was a punishment in which political prisoners, during fascism, were sent to live in remote places (islands or mountains) in inhumane conditions.
- "Italian judges are mentally disturbed."
- "I adopted my playboy abilities to persuade the Finnish PM Tarja Halonen to settle the European Food safety Authority in Parma instead of Helsinki. In fact Parma ham isn't even comparable with Finnish smoked reindeer."
- "You should read the Black Book of Communism. Communists didn't eat children, they boiled them to fertilize fields."
- "People say bad things on me, even that I'm like that Argentinian dictator who killed his oppositors by taking them in a plane with a ball and opened the door and told them to go outside and play football." It's a reference to the desaparecidos tragedy in the 1970s and 1980s, when political oppositors were dumped in the ocean by planes.
- "Barrack Obama is young, handsome and suntanned." (Suntanned is also a racist American slang for black).
- "Judges are politicized and are the cancer of our democracy."
- "Italy is a shitty country."
- "Angela Markel is an un****able lard-arse."
- "Italian judges are like East German secret police."
- To Obama: "In Italy we have the dictatorship of leftist judges."
- "Germans still deny the holocaust."
- "I never paid for sex."
- "To save our economy we should print more money."
- "Vittorio Mangano* was an hero." *a guy convicted for mafia crimes
- To refugees of 2009 L'Aquila eartquake living in camps: "Imagine you were on holiday in a camping."

Feh. His French was almost as bad as his English.
