Yinz Second Khmer Lesson: Khmai-burghese

13 11 2011

This is what happens when you teach a yinzer Khmer. I know they always say to remember your audience, and after some calculations, it seems that exactly one person reading this will understand. But we think it’s funny anyha. Enjoy, Paulie!

You haven’t learned the Khmer word for “jack off” yet? I’m disappointed in Peace Corps’s training…

And I’m disappointed in the fact that after having lived in Pittsburgh for several years you haven’t adopted the local spelling of “jagoff,” ha ha. Thanks for reading, Emily. Hope to see you in Siem Reap next weekend. And for any of you out there reading this who haven’t lived in Pittsburgh, let me clarify that this is not as dirty as it sounds. Jagoff is used to call someone a jerk in the ‘burgh.

Fair point, Tim. I only got so far as “yinz” and “daan-taan” in my Pittsburghese.

Happy Thanksgiving!!
