Here's one for the South Africans today with these humorous Afrikaans illustrations. As English is my home language I often found things to be quite peculiar when studying Afrikaans especially the idea that teeth + pasta can somehow make the word toothpaste.

  3. That is odd - I will have to forward this to my Afrikaans friend!

    Just discovered your blog and would love it if you stopped by mine sometime.

  4. Tooth Pasta! Ahh I love this so much! I wonder what quirky words we have that make no sense at all to non-english speakers?
