Ya'ani?

From Al-Abasseya Weekly:


Wife Murders Husband for Injudicious Use of “Ya’ani Eh?”



Late Tuesday night Umm Tamer had finally had enough and during the a’asha meal hit Abu Tamer on the head with a pot containing macaroni we beshamel, the heaviest casserole known to man. Witnesses (Tamer) say that while dishing out the entree Umm Tamer had been complaining that Abu Tamer was spending too much time in the streets with his friends and not bringing enough of his salary home. When Abu Tamer replied, “ya’ani eh?” Umm Tamer lost control and hit him with the hotdish. During the grand jury inquisition the judge was swayed by her testimony that Abu Tamer always asked “ya’ani eh” whenever he wanted to dodge the issue in their arguments and she was unable to stand it any longer. She was cleared of all charges on the ruling that injudicious use of “ya’ani eh” contributed to a momentary psychotic break and as such Umm Tamer could not be held responsible for her actions. In the press conference when Umm Tamer was asked if she felt any remorse over the death of Abu Tamer she replied, “Ya’ani eh..?”



*"ya'ani" means something along the lines of "what" or "I mean"- "ya'ani eh?" can be translated as "what do you mean?"

Here's my headline...
Husband losses life after saying "Madesh Habibi" to absolutely EVERYTHING wife complains of during the entire nine months of pregnancy

I think my wife would suffocate him with a dirty diaper!LOL

Oh, still laughing.... Ya'ani is one of those words that has creeped into my vocabulary. MMMMM, and you might hear me muttering, "Yah Gazmah!!!" while picking up after an errant and inconsiderate family member!LOL Too bad I can't pick up anything more useful than slang!

habibi- I'm glad you liked it and didn't fear for your life. I swear it isn't written about you!!!


Umm Layla- haaaaaaaaaa Gezma!!! looooooooooooooooool.

LOL - as I was initially reading this thought, "What?! Where did this happen?!" Then I saw the last lines. You got me.

Manders said...

Haha...at first I was like, "is this real??" I especially liked the part where you said, "heaviest casserole known to man"..that made me chuckle! HEY, I get to see you in like, TWO days! Yippeeeeeee.

Molly said...

H- thats why I put the disclaimer, I figured it sounded too official and, well, likely to happen and that people would think it was real. But its not, its just from my own twisted sense of humor.

Manda- I'm so excited to see you guys, you have no idea. I miss phx like nobody's business.

Tomorrow I arrive yo!
