Since I started this project, I noticed there's tons of Flemish sentences and slogans in commercials out there! Today while walking to work, I noticed one from BASE with the slogan:
"Hoe zot is dees!" "How crazy is this!"
"zot" is the Flemish word for "crazy", for example:
Die kerel is zot! That guy is crazy! Laten we ne keer zot doen! Let's get a little crazy! Die is zo zot als een deur! He/She is crazy like a fool! (Getting some "daddy cool" vibes here)
Here are some useful variations on the formula "Hoe ... is dees!":
Hoe lekker is dees! How delicious is this! Hoe zalig is dees! (check out the Twitter example) How awesome is this! Hoe saai is dees! How boring is this! Hoe plezant is dees! How fun is this! Hoe ambetant is dees! How annoying is this!
So there you have another key phrase to stun your Flemish friends and co-workers! #soundlikealocal
