I'm The Yak

I, unlike cows, GRUNT, rather than MOO

Yaks have horns, and long shaggy hair. "The word Yak is also used to describe an irritating or disagreeable individual" - Wikipedia

    The Lonely Planet thinks we're all on drugs


    The yak is a fan of lonely planet guidebooks. More so of their phrasebooks. They can literally help you have an entire conversation with a weird painted tribesman verbatim from the book. Sometimes, however, I'm amazed at some of the phrases they think we're likely to want to use. These are some of my favourites:

    Hindi:

    Is there compulsory voting here?
    Kya: sabhi: logõ ko vot dena: parta: hai?

    I believe in destiny/fate.
    Mai~ bha:gyava:di: hu:~.

    Then our faithful guides hit a bong or two, and return with these choice phrases in Vietnamese:

    What is your monthly salary?
    wôl-gûp-i ôl-ma-im-ni-kka?

    Who lived here?
    nu-ga sal-ass-jûm-ni-kka?

    And of course, every steroid/heroin/crack junkie's favourite phrase, particularly handy:

    Indonesian:

    I have my own syringe.
    Saya punya suntikan saya sendiri.

    What more can I say. Geniet die dag, jou ma naai vir viskoppe.

    Ha! 'I have my own syringe'!? Well, actually I do, but that isn't the point. Interestingly, one of the few phrases I remember from high school French is 'May I please sharpen my pencil?' Yep, that got me far in the world, let me tell ya'.
