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!
Even though mazza is technically a mallet, this is still hilarious.
