Cajnik: Ty vole.


As a Slovak it saddens me that it's almost impossible to translate this into English without losing its power.

"Dude" doesn't pack the same punch and even Wiktionary translates it differently.

Why the fark is this a scandal?  This sounds like a normal goddamn person talking to me.  To paraphrase: It's a hell of a long flight.
Who the hell was offended by that?  It's not like he just said "That prick isn't worth the f*cking effort," or some shiat like that.  He just commented on the length of the flight and people are biatching about it.

PRAGUE-Czech prime minister suffered an embarrassment when he used swearwords to complain he had to take a long-haul flight to South Africa to attend the Dec. 15 funeral...

I flew here all the way from the Czech Republic...and boy are my f*cking Arms tired.

I'm proud of him. Who wants to watch an incarnation of Evil be lit on fire for a satanic send off anyway?

It also sounded like he didn't really want to go but would have to because President Zeman is recovering from an operation.  That, again, is no scandal.  Regardless of the esteem in which one might hold the deceased, traveling to and attending a state funeral is nothing but a drag.  Why do you suppose that's the Vice President's job for all but the highest ranking funerals?  I think Rusnok was doing nothing more than expressing the same emotions most people would.  That can only translate into a scandal for someone so enamored of scandal as to invent one if there seems to be an insufficiency.

As I said above. It's really impossible to translate this properly.

Here's the whole conversation, apologies for crappy translation:

Jiří Rusnok: shiat [or 'dude']. Mandela has died.
Vlastimil Picek: Well hey, who'll go there?
Jiří Rusnok: Well, I hope the president, shiat. I'm completely shaking hoping that I won't have to.
Vlastimil Picek: They do it in ten days, mostly.
Jiří Rusnok: Saturday 14th it is... Now I have some lunch, then dinner, so I, shiat, am scared that I'll have to go there. I absolutely don't want to go there. Absolutely. 19th I have to go to Brussels. And, shiat, I don't know, it's a hell of a distance! I don't know, I'd have to go by plane or something...
Vlastimil Picek: Nah, with the special [president's plane]...
Jiří Rusnok: shiat, But who will pay it?
Vlastimil Picek: I'll pay it.
Jiří Rusnok: Well, we'll manage this years budget... Well, terrible, I hope, listen, I hope, that Miloš [Czech president, notorious drunkard] is fired up, that he wants to go and that he will go. I'm sure doctors will tell him not to go.
Vlastimil Picek: Can you tell me, how he'll climb up the stairs into the plane?
Jiří Rusnok: Well, I don't know...
Vlastimil Picek: Coz he's got problems with stairs.
Jan Fischer: That's bullshiat. Then well have some trouble in there.
Vlastimil Picek: Listen, he cancelled our trip to Afghanistan on the 20th and he'll fly here?
Jiří Rusnok: Well, then he'll wont fly, it's in ass.

Czech original:
Jiří Rusnok: Ty vole, teď ještě zase zemřel Mandela...
Vlastimil Picek:No hele, kdo tam pojede?
Jiří Rusnok: No, já doufám, že prezident, ty vole. Já se uplně třepu, abych tam nemusel jet.
Vlastimil Picek: Oni to dělaj tak do těch desíti dnů, většinou.
Jiří Rusnok: Čtrnáctýho v sobotu to je... Teď já mám ještě nejakej oběd, pak máme večeři, takže já, vole, jsem ve strachu, že budu muset ještě jet tam. Vůbec se mi tam nechce. Vůbec. Devatenáctýho mám zase Brusel. A to, vole, ještě nevim, dyť to je dálka jako prase! Já nevim, to bych tam musel nějakou linkou nebo něčim...
Vlastimil Picek: Nee, speciálem...
Jiří Rusnok:Ty vole, ale kdo to zaplatí?
Vlastimil Picek: Já to zaplatim.
Jiří Rusnok:No, rozpočet letos to zvládne... No, hrozný, já doufám, hele, já doufám, že Miloš je nažhavenej, že chce někam jet a že pojede. Oni doktoři mu budou určitě řikat, ať tam nejede.
Vlastimil Picek: Můžeš mi říct, jak vyleze do těch schodů do toho letadla?
Jiří Rusnok: No, já nevim...
Vlastimil Picek: Dyť on má problémy se schodama.
Jan Fischer: To je úplná blbost. Ještě tam bude nějakej průser.
Vlastimil Picek: Hele, nám zrušil cestu do Afghoše dvacátýho a poletí tady?
Jiří Rusnok:No, tak asi nepoletí, tak je to v prdeli.

Would you guys cut it out already?  If you're not outraged it makes it harder for me to be outraged and I've been waiting all morning for something to get outraged about.

I think you should be outraged about the outrage.  That would be outrageous.

I don't think it's as much of a scandal as it is strange/funny/weird to hear this 2nd in command say 'Dude' three times every sentence. No one I talked to takes it as an actual scandal.

Imagine if John Boehner was caught on mic saying "dude, we gotta stop this Obamacare, dude."
