    Смешные слова

    Правда ли, что для англоговрящих слова типа "бабушка" кажутся смешными?

    Русское слово "бабушка"? По-моему, само слово не смешое для англоговорящих, а сами бабушки - смешные.

    Well just about every American thinks that бабушки are ушанки.

    When I was in Russia I told some people about that, and after I bought an ушанка they joked and asked to wear my бабушка.

    I don't know if they actually think its a FUNNY word, though yeah it does sound a little strange. But thats just to us americans, and everyone knows we're retarded so oh well.
    Вот это да, я так люблю себя. И сегодня я люблю себя, ещё больше чем вчера, а завтра я буду любить себя to ещё больше чем сегодня. Тем что происходит,я вполне доволен!

    Yeah, Dogboy got the point.

    "Bloomsbury dictionary of difficult words" says that "babushka" is "a woman's scarf, worn as a head covering with the ends tied under the chin."

    Yes, in English it means a headscarf, but lots of people will have never heard the word babushka before. Also English speakers say babooshka (misplaced stress).

    Actually, many of my American colleagues think that babushka is a hot Russian chick. We should start a mail-order-babushka website and see how many hits we get

    A while back my Mrs and I were walking down the highstreet where we live and were accosted by two teenage-to-early-twenties girls handing out fliers for a new nightclub. It was called BABOOSHKAS. They were both wearing jackets, teeshirts and baseball caps with BABOOSHKAS logos on them.

    I bet that place was banging.

    No doubt. I guess in a certain context it could sound a little... uh, suggestive.

    Did the BABOOSHKAS logo have little dots in in the middle of the O's?

    There is a nightclub in Moscow called "Sorry Babushka". You'll sure have fun standing in line for 45 minutes.
    Вот это да, я так люблю себя. И сегодня я люблю себя, ещё больше чем вчера, а завтра я буду любить себя to ещё больше чем сегодня. Тем что происходит,я вполне доволен!
