British TV host Bradley Walsh couldn’t stop laughing during the Fanny Chmelar question on ITV’s quiz show The Chase. Fanny Chmelar is a German alpine skier, but it seems that her name has a very naughty meaning in British English…
had tears running down my face with laughter :))))
Hope no one calls me Fanny Anne again, just reminds me of this he he he LOL
Well,,,, “Chmelar” comes from czech language and it’s being red very differerently in czech. First “Ch” is standalone letter in czech lang. (e.g. like “chimera” in latin or greek). The second… it do not end with pure “r”, but “ř”. Ř then sounds like nothing you heard before. Meaning of the word “Chmelař” is simply “hop-grower” or “hop-dealer” :)
Swimming? Should of been muff diving!!
One of the sports should have been Ping Pong
