Feel good about your Arabic with Lindsay Lohan

22 Apr

Did you feel embarrassed when you called your sweetheart كلبي (my dog), instead of قلبي (my heart)? Or when you confused شوكة (fork) with شقة  (flat)? Don’t feel down, there is much worse: 

This picture was posted by Lindsey Lohan on her Instagram, to tell her fans that they are donkeys. Ehh, I mean, that they are beautiful!

The maker of this picture obviously had the intention of trapping non-Arabic speakers to use this picture. But he never thought it would end up with Lindsey Lohan insulting her 3.5m fans!

So be careful not to be trapped by jokes on the internet. Get your Arabic from a trusted source, where expressions and jokes are explained 😉
