Here's Lookin' At YOU, Kid!


If you should happen to find yourself drinking at a dinner party full of Internationals and Romanians who have already shouted "Noroc!" (Nor-oak) and "Success!" (Sook-chess) with every progressing decanter, not to mention "Skol!," "Salud y amor y pasetas" and "l' chaim" do not, I repeat, Do Not hoist your own chalice and loudly proclaim "Prost!" to the assembly.

In Romanian, it means idiot.
(Not to mention "stupid," "fool", "simpleton" and "ninny.")


Now THAT is how you really learn to speak Romanian. And <blush> also how not to.
