[joke ] Manyana

Recommended Posts

thugilex    23

Spanish singer Julio Iglesias was on television with British TV host Anne Diamond when he used the word 'manyana'. Diamond asked him to explain what it meant.

He said that the term means "maybe the job will be done tomorrow, maybe the next day, maybe the day after that. Perhaps next week, next month, next year. Who cares?"

The host turned to Irishman Shay Brennan who was also on the show and asked him if there was an equivalent term in Irish.

"No. In Ireland we don't have a word to describe that degree of urgency," replied Brennan.

You lot don't get it?

The saying is a loose term to describe a time scale, you'd never say the saying if something needed doing quickly.

And the Irishman is saying that is a very urgent saying compared to what they are used too...

Who quotes a snyper reply for the win? Seriously

I guess I should know by now since I've been browsing these forums for quite some time, but what's the deal about snyper? Should we not take him seriously? I've seen some weird things said about him. lol :huh: :p
