Worldwide shitholes

Postby Pyrrho » Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:25 pm

Donald the Trump has yet again opened his cakehole and gifted us – and especially lexicographers – with another citable instance of vulgarity. Naturally, his ass-mouth made headlines around the world when he said “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” And naturally, this shit has to be reported on in other languages. So what do you do when you’re writing in another language and trying to translate shithole countries effectively?


But no one can quite top the Croatians for this. It’s not that their best word translates exactly to shithole or Bumfuck nowhere. It almost does it better (although Google Translate does render it as ‘shithole’). It’s vukojebina, and it means ‘the place wolves fuck’ – or, if we were to make a real equivalent English place name, something like Wolffuckington or Wolf-fuck-ville. (Birds may not lay eggs there and dogs may not shit there, but the wolves? They get busy.) And Croatia’s Express features that word in its headline.

Great Moments in 'Shithole' Literature
A 1629 manuscript containing the first-known use of the term can be found at the Bodleian Library in Oxford.


The very first known use of shithole in English print literature appears in a remarkable manuscript held at the Bodleian Library in Oxford. The manuscript, titled Liber Lilliati, contains bawdy verse written by the cathedral musician John Lilliat some time before his death in 1629.


Ten tuff Turds did I tosse in thi teeth that I troinst from my tuch hole,

Nine nickinge nockes did I nicke on thi nose that I neisde from my narshole:

Fiue flushing fartes did I flap in thi face that I flunge from my fisthole,

Six shitten shotes did I shoote in thy mowth that I shot from my shithole.

finis.

So basically he just won 2020.

CNN today ran a DAMNING REPORT about how Republicans aren't OUTRAGED by the rumor that Trump called something... maybe Haiti... maybe all of Africa... (fakenews is funny) a SHITHOLE.

Well... everyone I know has called some third world country a shithole at some point. They only outraged people are the media and the bitter hillary voter remnant. The average joe just said "FINALLY a president that talks like me".

This is the disconnect between the press and the rest of us right now.

Nobody gives a shit about this. Him calling Haiti (supposedly, or some other country) a shithole in a _private_ closed door meeting doesn't give gays better treatment under the law, doesn't decriminalize marijuana further, doesn't reduce our fighting overseas, etc, etc.

It's Bullshit News vs FakeNews (which it might be). It's the High School Drama version of news. And for Trump supporters and swing voters, it's a big "So what?"

The Media wouldn't be reporting High School Drama if Teh Orange Fucktard and the rest of those shitheels(tm) in DC weren't presenting as pimply faced empty headed miserable little shits who need serious time in solitary confinement followed up by a meat grinder.

And so on.

you have a good point

This is why I leave it turned off, only reason i know about this is because David Brocks bot army upvoted it on reddit.

A. it's a big "so fucking what"
B. the real problem is supposedly Durbin snitched about something off the cuff which could only serve to sabotage the daca effort and hurt foreign relations. If Trump really did say it, why leak it you fucking retard? You are never going to another closed door meeting again. Dipshit.
