A few Dutch sayings in English;

  • It rains steel pipes.
  • I fell with the door in the house.
  • There is nothing on the hand.
  • I shall let them smell a poopy.
  • I’m keeping you in the holes.
  • I don’t trust you for a meter.
  • It shall me a sausage be.
  • It’s dick black outside.
  • Unfortunately peanutbutter.
  • To participate for bacon and beans.
  • There is not a ball on the tv.
  • It walks in the soup.
  • Falling through the basket.
  • This time, I can see it through the fingers.

Let me just add some personal favourites;

I have a dark brown suspicion
That sits quite mustache
Oh, on that bike
You can go on the pot
It can’t matter to me an ass
If you like sausage
Am I standing here for Jan dick, or so?
