In this episode of Condé Nast Traveler's 'Many People from Many Countries Say Things', people from 70 countries demonstrate the common ways to say hello and goodbye where they're from (previously: sneezing sounds/how to say the post-sneeze 'bless you' equivalent, and dog and cat noises). I like how hello in the Czech Republic is pronounced ahoy (ahoj). That's very piratey -- and you know how I feel about pirates. "You want to be one." Yes, but I also want to be one of Peter Pan's Lost Boys, so I'm torn. "How bad?" Like the centerfold out of a nudie magazine. "That's serious." Hang me in the garage by your tool chest?
Keep going for the video.
Thanks to Marissa L, who agrees the best hello and goodbye is a high-five.
