Wetherspoons has a breakfast menu. Booyah
I am either ridiculously impressed with voice recognition or completely baffled.

"Dive Source SCUBA Watersports" Did you mean, Dinosaurs School for Watersports?

No. But please take me there, smartphone.


We see this kind of shit in Wales all the time.

I like this. I like how you handled this. You could've come right out and been "Some guy cunted that sheep," but you went subtle.

zwaffelen: physically tapping a person with your penis to initiate sex.

The Dutch have a word for everything.

There is a dead variant of Afrikaans known as Arabic-Afrikaans:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arabic_Afrikaans

I bet those guys must have had Google Translate back in the 19th century, eh Starky?

Pretty awesome though. Check this little nugget of conflation out:

Iek bagent diesie kitab meated Allah (ta'ala) sain naam. Allah (ta'ala) es rizq giefar ien dunya fer al wat liefandag ies. Allah (ta'ala) es beriengar ien die gannat ien dag ahirat fer al die miesie an djinns wat oewhap iman gadoet het. Al die dank an parais es rieg fer Allah (ta'ala) alien. Allah (ta'ala) het gagief fer oewhans islam sain agama. Islam sain agama oek waas gawies fantefoewhar Ibrahim sain agama... An Allah (ta'ala) het gamaak die Qur'an rasulullah sain hadit fer seker dalil fer oewhans... An Allah (ta'ala) het galaat oewhans wiet die riegtie wieg fan die ilms an gahelp fer oewhans oewham ta lier ander miesie oewhap die riegtie manierie.


Most of those words are Afrikaans at least in origin, but deviate radically from standard Afrikaans.

I'm not sure what you point is here, Gooderham, this is a paragraph Afrikaans words (of some sort) with specifically Qur'anic Arabic technical terms included to describe Islamic theological-philosophic concepts. Rather than your Google Translate efforts of nonsensical strings of Arabic words. Muslims talking about Islam in English aren't speaking 'Arabic-English'.

True, but we sadly don't have a "Furious Masturbation" forum.

Brainwave: we should have a "Furious Masturbation" forum.

In the supermarket you have class one, two or class three eggs and some are more expensive than others and some give you better omelettes. So when the class one eggs are in Waitrose and you cannot go there, you have a problem.

The Afrikaans has been so perverted that even Lana doesn't know what's being said. By comparison, she can quite happily understand most written Dutch and Flemish.

This isn't even a creole or pidgin of Afrikaans and Arabic - it's like some mullah has tried to develop his own Afrikaans-influenced vocabulary. Which I find fascinating, and would be a slap in the face to Boers fanatical about 'suiwer Christen Afrikaans'. I wonder if it was ever actually spoken, or just written.

Given the available evidence, the best conclusion is that it's Muslims who don't know the Latin alphabet writing non-standard Afrikaans poorly.

The current working theory on the history of clockwork is that it was invented in third century BC Syracuse, moved east with the fall of Greece and Rome, then brought to Spain by Islamic invaders / traders and that's how we have clockwork today.
