    Take it easy everyone.. geez. It’s not meant to be taken too seriously, clearly it’s not a true translation just a lighthearted funny one..

    Thanks for sharing Charles!

      Thanks for understanding, Anna. Exactly…. My friend is a Serb who found some translations that he thought would make people smile.
