  • I already gained one :-) "...pantufinhas de menina..."
  • MOTORISTAS PIQUININOS!

    (I'm yelling in hopes that you'll hear this all the way from Toronto. Hope my lack of ability to speak Portuguese does not cause a problem in comprehension. At least I said it loud enough for a large number of people on use.perl to have heard me, modulo their lack of comprehending Portuguese.)

    • By the way, I chose that particular phrase because I had some recognition of both of the words. Piquininos was mentioned in "Children of the Mind" (the fourth book in the Ender's Game series by Orson Scott Card) as the basis of the nickname of one of the children. Motoristas are, obviously, terrorists that use motor vehicles as their weapon - i.e. about one out of every four people I pass on the highway.
      • "Piquininos" actually has a typo, on purpose, so that the accent is funnier :-) "Pequenino" derives from "pequeno", and both mean "small, or "short".

        "Motorista" means "driver" :-)

        So you chose "short drivers", but kind of in child-say. Unfortunately for you, somebody else on IRC had already tried that one! :-D

        You wouldn't believe how much fun I'm having with all this :-)
  • "My Hovercraft is full of eels."

    Although Camel-spotting is the lead in to the all time great zipper line, "Oh, You're no fun anymore!", which is decidedly inappropriate in this thread ...
