To say that there are many funny Russian sayings is an understatement! What is also true is that one of the indicators of your level of proficiency in Russian is how well you know and use them. There are many sources for funny Russian sayings: anecdotes, folk tales or humour TV shows like KVN where teams compete by giving funny answers to questions and showing prepared sketches. Funny doesn’t only mean entertaining. It can also stand for something that sounds strange, foreign. A lot of funny Russian sayings don’t make sense when translated into English: “To rub in glasses”—to deceive, “To show one Kuzma's mother”—to teach someone a lesson, “After it rains on Thursday”—a way of saying that something will never happen. The day when you can understand funny Russian sayings and use them in your speech, will be the day when you can say that you have mastered Russian! Your speech will be more lively, your Russian friends and colleagues will be impressed, and you will have way more fun as you laugh and learn!
