Fun on Friday: Funny Xmas cards and why
Hi Teatime Titbiters, as you know Brits love to send Xmas cards and a lot want to move away from the more traditional cards to humorous/rude cards.
Whenever you have a bit of time on your hands today, you may want to check out the following webpage: https://www.comedycard.co.uk/collections/funny-christmas-cards
I chose my 5 faves just from the 1st page and I’ll do my best to explain what is funny about the cards –
Weather’s crap = ‘crap’, ‘buggered’, ‘be in a strop’ mean ‘shit’ , ‘be broken’ and ‘in a bad mood/pissed off ‘
Build a giant snowman = ‘don’t be soft’, ‘bollocks’ mean ‘stupid/crazy’, ‘balls = Eier’
Sucks up to them before Xmas = ‘to suck up (to sb)’ means to try to please sb (in authority) by praising them too much, helping them, etc., = sich bei jdm einschmeicheln
Seasonal cutbacks = ‘cutback’ is a way of saving money.
I’ve kept the receipts’ = ‘receipt’ is the piece of paper that shows that goods or services have been paid for.
If you dare (etw wagen)– check out RUDE ones – they certainly tickled my tinsel (made me laugh).
