    funny urdu words

    Anchals post about daryee ghorra and genda brought back some supressed thoughts

    I find many urdu words funny...as I find many words in english funny, magar urdu alfaaz ki toh baat hi aur hai.

    Lets just take one category..animal names..here are some of my favourite

    1) Chimgaddar (strangest word)
    2) Ood Bilaoo (sounds like some bala)
    3) Chachoondar (just sounds ghaleez)
    4) Jhinga (cockroach of the sea..i.e. prawn)
    5) Jhinger (cockroach..is the similarity in names of 4 & 5 just a coincidence)
    6) Laggar Baggha/Laggar Bagga (Laughing Hyena itself is a funny name, this animal got jipped in urdu and english both)
    7) tendva (just sounds like something that lives in a tandoor)
    8) Khargosh (literal meaning is donkey ears)
    9) Babbar Sher (sounds like a gangsta lion)

    and why dont we have a real name for a tiger? its sara sar bay insaafi. we call a it a dhari daar sher i.e. a lion with stripes...thats injustice to my favourite animal.
    The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he did not exist. And like that... he is gone.

        Yeah I tell a pal of mine whose last name is Baig that he shares his sirname as well as his hygiene habits with Lal baig.

        jhinger is a grass hopper right?

        I also find the words Kadoo and mooli funny.
        ullu is a funny word too

                  leechi sounds like a leech or lucchi (as in lucchi lafangi which in itself is funny)

                  tidda...baychara..got stuck with such a name.

                  and then there is kuchva and called kashukuma in punjabi...

                            Talking of funny words. can´t beat punjabi..every single word comes in several odd variations. just take the word "bald"- (headed)..

                            Ganja
                            tindal
                            RoDa

                            and then you have funny rimes like..

                            "tinD minD kotna, beshak daNdha thokna"

                            There is actually even a joke about every word having two meanings in Punjabi, but I guess it might be considered too much, so may be I´ll just keep it to myself
