This idea arose from Dodge's comments about getting turned on by looking up in a bi-lingual dictionary the "naughty" words from non-English postings. I guess I'm not the only one who can't resist looking up such terms as "accident" whenever a new dictionary comes my way, even an English one? And I'm sure it would help international relations to be able to enjoy pee talk in several languages - we might get a United Nations Award for furthering international understanding ... So for starters, can anyone offer the non-English versions of some favourite little phrases guaranteed to get those juices flowing, for example ...
- I'm nearly peeing myself
- I've pissed my pants
- I can't wait any longer
- I've gotta go
Also what's the "polite" way to anounce in various languages that you need to visit the bathroom - this could be quite useful to many of us! I am by profession a teacher of English as a Foreign Language and once had a very interesting conversation with a Korean student who told me she "must soon be very relieved" - fortunately (for her) her body language communicated better than her English and I was able to direct her to the toilet just in time!
