this one is not a joke nor something like it, but funny as if a joke.

longest Turkish word:

"muvaffakiyetsizleştiricileştiriveremeyebileceklerimizdenmişsinizcesine"

70 letters, man, please forgive me that i called english "damned", look at my own (:

can hardly be translated as:

"Like you are from those we could not make easily a maker of unsuccessful ones."

Note for Libra: "Muvaffakiyet" is a loanword from Arabic, so we can consider this Turco-Arabic joint product ;)

Hey Bro :)

Again; "Muvaffakiyet" I can't get to understand it pls? :S
Mind some clarifications, sweets?!

Plus yes, I agree there are some cool bunch of common words in both our languages that is; Turkish and Arabic ... damn sure :)

oh sister, i don't know how to write it in latin alphabet...ummm, let me try...
"Mowaffakhiyyat"

the state of being successful.

And that long word was created by Turkish suffixes added to the Arabic word

we use a different type of latin alphabet, so it is hard to write arabic words -that i used to write in Turkish latin alphabet- in the latin alphabet that English use. ouch! what a long sentence i wrote, i hope there's no mistake ;)

A Turkish historian quoted as:
"As we were conquering lands, we were also conquering words..."

So there's a good selection of arabic and persian words in our language. Only the most fair ones, i suppose ;)

Here we go:

A young boy asks his Dad, "What is the difference between confident and confidential?"

Dad says, "You are my son, I'm confident about that.
Your friend over there, is also my son, that's confidential."


;)

hahaha (:

another "nationalist" one ;) here comes:

An Irani,a French,a German,an English,a Hebrew and "the Turk" sit and talk about their nations, each one boasting.

Irani says:My country is famous for its rugs,so beautiful that one thinks that walking upon them would be a pity...

French says:We are well-known for our girls, and the way they kiss is famous all around the world.

German says:Our beer is the best in the world, some do not drink but just watch it and get drunk...

English says:Quality of our cars has no equal. People see how noble design of our cars is and say"Yes, this is English!"

Hebrew says:Mossad, the best intelligence agency in the world. We even know when a mosquito flies in middle east skies...

And the Turk: We are well-known for our men, who can take a French girl and have a nice ride in an English car, drink some German beer,make love on an Irani carpet before Mossad learns what's going on
;)

Thanks Tony, good laugh to start the day. DSW may have to translate his comment for you though.

To raise ones hat as a sign of respect or acknowledgement of a well performed task.

Next you'll be telling me you dont know what to do if the phantom knicker nicker gets nicked nicking knickers - throw him in the nick.

How hard can it be?
