Silliness from other countries :)

What to Call Your Period in Other Countries
March 29, 2010 by Miss Expatria

* The Netherlands: “The tomato soup is overcooked”

* Brazil: “I’m with Chico”

* China: “Little Sister has come”

* Many parts of Latin America: “Jenny has a red dress on”

* Australia: “I’ve got the flags out”

* Denmark: “There are Communists in the funhouse”

* Ireland: “I’m wearing a jam rag”

* England: “I’m flying the Japanese flag”

* Japan: “Little Miss Strawberry”

* France: “The English have arrived”

* Germany: “The cranberry woman is coming”

* Puerto Rico: “Did the rooster already sing?”

* South Africa: “Granny’s stuck in traffic”

I kind of love Denmark's and France's saying...Very clever *g*

I've never, ever heard that one! In my family it's always called 'time of the month,' but some of those are really funny!

Erm, I live in Brazil and I never said anything close to "I'm with Chico" O_o

I usually say "I'm in those days" or "My girl friend's come".

My girl friend's come LOL!

I've never heard any of these - very creative!! It makes me wonder how many sayings we would have here in the US? I used to call it my monthly UNWELCOME visitor!!
lijahloverlijahlover on March 30th, 2010 04:44 am (UTC)
My monthly visitor is what I refer to it as :)

these are great! but nothing beats the one in the land of ladysnaps: "non-existent" YEA! \O/
lijahloverlijahlover on March 30th, 2010 04:44 am (UTC)
Yes that's the best one non-existent! :)

I am German and I have never heard the saying we're supposed to use*lol*

What we actually say is "My aunt from the red hills is visiting".

Some are funny though:)
