These Turkish Are Crazy

Via my cousin-in-law’s twitter feed, I came across an awesome story of misunderstanding, stupidity, revenge and true love made possible only by the magic of technology.

Update: A helpful comment on the above story tells me that the innocent word in question “s?k???nca” literally means “in a squeeze”. The word reminds me of the Hindi word “shikhanja” which has a similar meaning. It is entirely possible that Hindi borrowed the word from Turkish. In that case, our failure to borrow the other word represents a huge missed opportunity to tackle our population problem.
