One-Note Sentences

17 Sep

Monotonous conversation from around the world:

Finnish:

Etsivät etsivät etsivät etsivät etsivät.
“The searching detectives are searching the searching detectives.”

Spanish:

¿Cómo como? ¿Cómo cómo como? Como como como.
“How do I eat? What do you mean, how do I eat? I eat how I eat.”

Icelandic:

Ái á Á á á í á.
“A farmer named Ái, who lives on a farm by the name of Á, owns a female sheep that is in a river.”
Malay:

Sayang, sayang sayang sayang, sayang sayang sayang?
“Darling, I love you, dear, do you love me?”

Romanian:

Stanca sta-n castan ca Stan.
“Stanca stood in a chestnut tree like Stan.”

Hungarian:

A követ követ követ.
“The envoy follows a stone.”

Tagalog:

Bababa ba? Bababa!
“Going down? It is!”

To me the funniest one is bababa… 😀
And this is what my friends Anita and Dirk added:
"From two to two to two to two."

"Jela je Jela jela ispod jela." Serbian one. Means: Jela had eaten dishes under fir tree.
German: "Fischers Fritz fängt frische Fische, rische Fische fängt Fischers Fritz." …it's about a Fritz hunting for fresh fish.

    Bababa is just hilarious. Do they have more words or there are just a combinations of "b" and "a"? :left:

    "Icelandic:Ái á Á á á í á.“A farmer named Ái, who lives on a farm by the name of Á, owns a female sheep that is in a river.”"So many things said with so little number of letters… Usefully and beautiful… 🙄
