Foreign Language wierdisms

In Chinese, the word "niu" means cow. However, if you use it to describe a person it basically means that they are the bomb, they are the cat's meow. God-like. You are cow.

To take a picture, they say "qie/zi," which actually sounds a lot like cheese, except it means eggplant.

In French the word for a chopstick is a "baguette." Imagine: Je utilise les baguette pour manger le baguette.

I'm sure there will be more strange tidbits in the future
