Máš žízeň?

That's a Czech phrase about being really thirsty. It means, literally, "I have a thirst like a girder." I guess you need a big drink to satisfy a thirst like that, but I never realized that girders and joists and crossbeams (oh my!) got thirsty.

I'd rather be thirsty like a monkey—at least they can scamper to the nearest water source. It's hard to do that if you're a girder.

Still thirsty?

If you are a monkey and live in Brno, then you can scamper on down to the "At the Thirsty Monkey" wine bar, just over the hill from NvB headquarters.

Hey,

I was doing a Technorati search for Central Europe and found this site. This post made me laugh. I also like the way you indicate the number of comments. "this post bores everyone". This kind of dry humour would go brilliantly in Australia - we have our fair share of watering holes and don't care if you're crossbeam or '4 be 2'.

Hi Rodd, thanks for your comment! Glad you weren't bored, or thirsty. ;-)
