Of course there was originally a point with lángos. I cut a few with too much Hungarian or contemporary references. 


Something along the lines of being unable to enjoy a day at the strand (water park) without having lángos. 


Now I found a few other good ones:


You Know You’re Hungarian When…

1. When your parents come to visit for 3 weeks and you all stay in a one bedroom apartment.

2. When feeding your guests is your main priority even if they claim they’re not hungry and in which case you get slightly offended/upset that they don’t want your hospitality.

3. When you know what Unicum is and prefer it over Jägermeister.

4. When you know how to open a bottle of wine with only a screw and a pair of pliers. 

5. When you’ve heard, "If you’re hungry, why not go to Turkey?" at least once in your life.

6. When you have a relative who’s named Attila (my nephew), Géza, József, János (my grandfather) or László (my father, father-in-law and brother-in-law) .

7. When you know that the "goulash" you see in many restaurants has actuality little/nothing to do with the gulyas leves we really eat.

8. When you know the meaning of "kurva" even if you don’t know any other Hungarian word. (But you could be from Poland too)

9. When you love Túró Rudi but cant really explain to foreigners what the hell that is untill they try it. 

10. When your foreign friends ask you if you still believe that Santa Claus brings the presents on the night between December 24th-25th… then you answer somehow confused that Santa Claus brings the presents on the 6th of December and it is actually Little Jesus who brings the presents on Christmas, but the presents are already there on the 24th at 6PM.

11. When a pancake is extremely flat in your country and you roll it up instead of folding it.

12. When you know what TÚRÓ is.

13. When you leave your house for longer than 2 hours, you make sure there’s enough sandwiches, apples, bottled tap water, coffee in a thermos, and chocolate bars packed for everyone to survive (without spending a dime)!

14. When you do not speak with your mouth full.

15. When guys keep telling you that Hungarian girls are the cutest and prettiest and hope that you just believe it and they get laid.

16. When you go into a Chinese restaurant and order your Sechuan chicken with french fries, cucumber salad and ask for a few slices of bread as well.

17. When you have a little funny accent in every other language you speak. (Not really funny to be called somehow not Slavic, maybe Turkish, but cute :-P)

18. When you love Mákos Guba and you can’t explain what MÁK is, neither GUBA to anyone.. and if you finally can, everyone will think you’re some kind of weirdo/junkee for eating that.

19. When you start counting on your hand with one being the thumb.

20. When you can show off your engagement ring, worn on the opposite hand. (Accurate for a few other counties as well. I love TimothyM's descriptions of it :-)

21. When you have more excuses for the controllers than you have tickets.

22. When the train hasn’t even left the station, but you are already eating your home made sandwiches (usually with half a paprika or tomato in it).

23. When you tell everybody that Hungarian people always criticize everything.

24. When the home-made sandwiches on the train/in the cinema/in the opera include Wienerschnitzel.

25. When you call a 79 km long lake (the Balaton) the Hungarian Sea. And you are able to swim across it!

26. When you have to pay in a wedding if you want to dance with the bride.

27. When you can eat ANYTHING deep fried (with breadcrumbs on it) and can make spirits (pálinka) of (almost) EVERYTHING, including paprika of course!

28. When you NEVER leave home with wet hair because you can get a cold and you ALWAYS bring your hair dryer when going abroad, and are astonished when people do not have one in their own homes!

29. When you sit always on the same place and chair, even when the (class)room is empty and "your" place is in the end of the room.

30. When zou cant tzpe on and english kezboard because y and z are mixed up.

31. When you know the difference between s and sz. and also u and ü.

32. When you tend to feel sorry for yourself for no particular reason and complain a lot. (Nowadays called complaining culture.)

33. When you are more creative in cheating then any other nationality.

34. When your language has two words for love.

35. When you have szaloncukor on a Christmas tree!

36. When you have a nameday and no one foreign understands what that is good for. (Except for Game of Thrones fans, but that is not the same either.)

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a broken fan belt.


It’s always darkest before dawn. So if you’re going to steal your neighbor’s newspaper, that’s the time to do it.


If you think nobody cares if you’re alive, try missing a couple of car payments.


If at first you don’t succeed, skydiving isn’t your sport.


Some days you’re the bug; some days you’re the windshield.


Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.


There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works.


Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

I wish I had thought of this! I actually had to get a loan (mom) to buy lemons and sugar. Plus our freezer had a gazillion ice cubes in it for a while (1950s). My down fall was allowing all my friends to run a tab and not hiring an enforcer to collect.

I'm no bigot but I REALLY don't want to share a bathroom with Cthulhu... 

I'd be more worried about sharing a bathroom with a teletubby... :unsure:
