We didn’t want anybody to feel left out when it came to throwing abuse up at the sun during these hot days in Vienna. And abuse sounds somehow delightful in a thick Austrian German. Oh, and for those non-native Austrian speakers, we’ve asked Google what it thinks these colourful phrases mean, and have provided a few translations of our own.
Here are 7 ways to abuse the hot weather like a genuine Austrian:
Google translates: It is sow hot
Vienna Würstelstand translates: It’s so hot! Get me to a pool Batman! And get that cape off you idiot, you’re sweating like a Schnitzel with meat sweats.
Google translates: I schwitz wia a Firmgöd (looks like google gave up trying to decipher this one)
Vienna Würstelstand translates: I schwitz wia a Firmgöd (looks like we did too… plus, we love the word firmgöd)
Google translates: A open fire
Vienna Würstelstand translates: press play below for translation…
Google translates: It is ur haass (Maybe google also has brain melt from the heat)
Vienna Würstelstand translates: It’s so hot that our thermometer says – global warming, I told you so mother******
Google translates: Go, hear on with there heat!
Vienna Würstelstand translates: “Hey Kim Jong-un, have you heard that the Americans love the sun and would be really upset if you harmed it in anyway.” (nudging ballistic missiles in his direction with cheeky grin)
Google translates: I sweat wia a pig!
Vienna Würstelstand translates: We don’t sweat, we shine. And at the moment, we’re shining like a big, fat, shiny pig doing parkour.
Google translates: I sweat the hitters off
Vienna Würstelstand translates: I’m sweating my arse off! Literally, look at it running up the street, all cheeky-like (sorry, we couldn’t help ourselves)
