Why would Germans accuse you of being like the donkey getting cross with a rabbit? Who would a Spaniard tell to go and fry asparagus? And when might the French claim they are without a radish?

Furthering your knowledge of the world s unusual idioms, Toujours Tingo will also explain how ordering lamb in Ethiopia may see a cow delivered to your table, and how politicians in Sweden may be encouraged occasionally to g ra en hel Pudel ( do a full poodle ) with some humble apologising. Covering such wide-ranging linguistic necessities as arguing, raising children, working and dining out, and filling all those gaps that English leaves thoughtlessly unplugged, this book s charm would for Russians at least be e iku ponjatno (obvious even to a hedgehog).
