If Dunglish wasn’t bad enough as a way to mangle the Dutch language, these literal translations (in Dutch) don’t help matters much. But yes, they are funny. While old school Dutch comedians Van Kooten en de Bie enriched the Dutch dictionary, new school comedians such as Theo Maassen have provided literal translation of English into Dutch. His popular live act ‘Neuk het systeem’ is a literal translation of the English ‘Fuck the system’. This kind of word play is something many of my Dutch friends do at the office and at parties and no, it’s not always dirty. The idea is everybody knows what they mean if they just translate it back to English.
