Coldfire, please translate

A few nights ago, some friends and I went to a bar and began talking to a tourist from Amsterdam. He was very nice and interesting and began to take a special interest in one of my friends. When she asked him if he was married he replied, “I’m Dutch and from Amsterdam”.

Would you please translate?

It means “Forget about my wife and six kids, honey, I want you to take me back to your place, dress up like a Geisha, put TRISTAN UND ISOLDE on the stereo, bind me hand and foot with silk handkerchieves, and flog me with a bicycle inner tube.”

No Duh Uke! I’m surprised that Saxface didn’t already know that!

Oh, and by the way, I’m an American, and I live in NJ.
<wink, wink>

Heh. I guess that’s his way of saying “I’m not married”.

Marriage is a litte less common over here than it is in the US (though not uncommon, of course), and Amsterdam, well… let’s say it’s a lively city with an openminded attitude. He probably implied to say “I’m enjoying my life to the fullest, and a wife would seriously interfere with that”. :slight_smile:

Of course I knew all of this. I just thought it was particularily hilarious.

Pointer for Men: It’s a good line to use when you want to avoid the question!

Uke, that is for sure the closest correct answer.

Wonko, that would work anywhere in the world but the US.

Coldfire, you are far too polite. I would have replied something along the lines of Uke. Let’s hear the REAL dirt of Amsterdamian men.

Thanks, fellas, I’m forwarding your replies to my friend.
