So Zvieri is to be eaten at 4pm? I'd never thought of it that way!
How much more obvious could it possibly be?
Provided one speaks the language.


I think I would like to implement the word "crapeli" into SwissGerman.
For the Swiss Gipfeli. (Not my idea but flow23's).

Re: Your favourite Swiss German expression

In German:
Ich kann Ihnen Rat geben. (I can give you advice.)

In English:
I don’t give a rat’s ass.

It’s your call as for which one is more appealing.
