TIPS & NOTES

batataThere are many ways to tell somebody in a rude way to go away and/or stop doing what they are doing. Here are just a we with rough equivalents in English. The list starts with the least rude and ends with the most taboo.

Vaza! – Go away!

Vá embora! – Go away!

Cai fora! – Get lost!

Se manda! – Beat it!

Vá plantar batata! – Take a hike!

Vá te catar! – Drop dead!

Vá catar coquinho! – Lit. go collect small coconuts! – Go jump in the lake!

Vá oara o inferno – Go to hell!

Vá a merda – Lit. go to shit! – Kiss my arse(UK) / kiss my ass(US)

Vá tomar naquele lugar! – Up yours!

Vá tomar no cu! – Up your arse! (UK) /Up your ass! (US) – TABOO

The last two expressions are often accompanied with the rude esture of giving somebody the finger – i.e. raising your middle finger in te air with your palm facing you.
