English Idioms


Funny....try to say it ...



"Trois sorcières regardent trois montres Swatch. Quelle sorcière regarde quelle montre Swatch ?"
Et maintenant en anglais :

"Three witches watch three Swatch watches. Which witch watch which Swatch watch?"

Maintenant pour les spécialistes :

"Trois sorcières suédoises et transsexuelles regardent les boutons de trois montres Swatch suisses. Quelle sorcière suédoise transsexuelle regarde quel bouton de quelle montre Swatch suisse ?"
Et en anglais (accroche-toi) :

"Three Swedish switched witches watch three Swiss Swatch watch switches. Which Swedish switched witch watch which Swiss Swatch watch Switch ?"

  • Fantabulous! Thank you, Hannah.
  • Terrifically staggering indeed!
    I staggered a lot while trying to say it, Victorine.
