At some point or another, we've all tried to literally translate a famous Maltese saying to English, with side-splitting results. A new Facebook page called Orrajt? has just been started, with the aim of curating all these sayings. 

A couple of hours later, it's already amassed quite the library, and here are our favourites.

1. Niġi naqa' u nqum minnek

2. Taqtax qalbek, affarjiet li jiġru

3. Kemm insibek f'sormi

4. Ta xejn, ruħi

5. Illostja, x'buzz!

6. Il-wiċċ ta' Kristu, x'mazza dik!
