Joke 399

Newborn son Magyar: Újszölött fiú

Thanks to Sidey for this one.  It might lose a little something in the translation if English is not your first language, so apologies for that.

I went to visit my friend today.  His wife was sat there with their newborn baby.  She asked if I’d like to wind it.

I thought that was a bit harsh so I gave it a dead leg instead.

UPDATE:

They say a joke’s not funny if you have to explain it, but here goes:

  • Winding the baby: rubbing its back/tummy to make it vomit all over your best top.
  • Winding a person: hitting them in the stomach so they can’t breathe and are in a lot of pain…kind of like when I give the Hub an affectionate pat on the belly.
  • Dead leg: get a friend to hit your thigh, hard, with the side of a fist.  Try to walk.  Pick yourself up off the floor and groan in pain.

    My family was from England & Scotland, so I was brought up with a lot of English expressions & I need a translation too! Does this have something to do with burping the baby? And what is a dead leg?

      Got it now, thanks for the translation. Will have to add that to “knock me up at 8, pram, bubble & squeek” & the other Englishisms I have on hand.

    whew….thank goodness we do speak English here in Canada…..I might have been a bit worried. 🙂
    you should join my Tuesday Coffee Chat next week: the topic will be different sayings, slangs and manner of speech. It would be so interesting to see British, Aussie, Canadian and American versions of “English”.
    my keyboard of course contains the letter “u”….which can be quite problematic for Windows Spell check. LOL

      I have gotten to the point where I just leave the U out of my words rather than fight with spell check.

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
