Kupi dober auto.  Buy a nice car.

Zakaj pa bi morala postati Slovenka?

Ostani, kar si= verjetno clovek drugace pa se lahko naucis kvackat, kuhat, zalivat roze no balkonu in pit vino. Why should you become Slovenian? Stay who you are; probably human. Otherwise you can learn to crochet, cook, water plants on the balcony, and drink wine.

 

Slovenka se moras rodit. You have to be born Slovenian. You need to be born Slovenian, sorry! But it is o.k. to be what you are.

Ena slivovka,

En brinjevec,

En Red Bull

Vodka in Slovenec si pravi

One slivovic (schnaps from plum)

One Brinjevec (schnaps from juniper plant)

One Red Bull

Vodka and you are a genuine Slovene.

 

Opazuj! Observe!

Slovenka postanes tako, da strudlju dodas rozine, kljub temu, da jih v resnici nihce ne mara! To Become Slovenian add raisins to strudel even though you know that nobody actually likes them!

 

Pejdi na Triglav Hike Triglav

 

WHY?

Lahko ta porocim Fredi I can marry you.

 

Pejdi na Triglav dobi Slovenca! Hike Triglav, get yourself a Slovene man.

 

Voli Janso! Vote for Jansa (SDS)! Pucer Vote for Jansa!

 

Brinjevec te pozdravi od glave do riti

ce ga znas pravilno piti.

Drzi se tega mota pa bo! 🙂 Jurij

Brinjevec can cure you from head to ass, if you know how to properly drink it.

Make this your motto and it will be ok.

Biti zarukan kmet, ceniti vino in pivo in ne razumeti nic o kulturi. Se bati sosednjih narodov rajse kot slovenskih tajkunov. Ne razumeti nic o dobri kuhinji!!!

Being a redneck, appreciate good wine and beer, don’t get anything about culture, be afraid of the people of neighboring countries more than Slovenian tycoons. Don’t understand anything about good cooking!!!

 

JUST BE IT.

MAYBE BORNING IN SLOVENIA! (sic)

Study the language!

Eat burek!

Climb to Triglav!

Don’t make any jokes! (That is a joke!)

Work hard! (Really hard!)

Love the nature!

1. Zdravljica vsaku jutro

2. Spi pokrita s slov. zastavo

3. Za kosilo= potica s kranjsko klobaso

4. Marjan!

1.Sing the national anthem (Zdravljica) each morning.

2.Sleep covered with the Slovenian flag

3.For lunch= potica with Kranjska Klobasa (sausage)

4. Marjan!

Bodi apaticna, potrpi vse, tudi ce/ko te teptajo, delaj se, kot da je vse NORMALNO! Be apathetic, endure everything, even if/when they stomp on you, and act like everything is NORMAL!

 

Ne, Ne, Ne,

Ne, Ne, Ne…

Mogoce Korosica…

Mogoce

No, No, No,

Again, No

Not Slovenian

No, No, No…

Izpolnis obrazec na upravni enoti… Lahko pa si slovenka tudi z Ameriskim Drzavljanstvom. Ja. 🙂 Fill out the form in the City Hall. But you can be Slovenian also with American Citizenship. Yep. 🙂

 

You have to love the country and to feel like you are Slovenian.

Zakaj pa bi postala slovenka? A ni bols bit svetovljanka?! P.S. Clovecanstvo za kolektiv. R.  Why would you become Slovenian?! Isn’t it better to be a person of the world? P.S. Human race (?) for collective (for all) R.

 

Kurentovanje je ze dober zacetek za preobrazbo v Slovenko, ostalo je pa se veliko neumnosti.  Kurent Festival is a good start for transforming into a Slovenian, the rest is a whole bunch of stupid things.

 

Gres na Triglav. Go on Triglav

Moras ustanovit druzinsko podjetje in se politicno povzpneti preko vez.

You must start a family business and climb politically through connections.

 

Moras pit dosti dosti vina! You must drink plenty plenty wine!

Ziveti Slovensko. Live Slovenian.

 

You have to speak Slovenian language and at least 2 foreign languages because nobody else don’t understand your language.

Ce hoces postati slovenka, moras biti sosedu “jealos” (sic) If you want to become Slovenian, you must be jealous of your neighbor.
