Weird and wondrful foreign phrases...

The book these phrases comes from sounds entertaining.

I will add though, that I already use a slang term for "Layogenic," a Tagalog (Philippines) word for "a person who is only goodlooking from a distance." MONET! My friends and I have used that one for ages and I'm sure we didn't think it up ourselves, must come from pop culture. How many times we've said it: "Oh, nevermend, he was just a monet." Need I explain origin?
