Overheard in Israel

Gonev overheadnyc

I’m sure you’re familiar with Overheard in New York, a blog that lets people post the bits of conversation that they hear in the streets, at the office, wherever, so long as it’s funny. As with most trends, Israel is catching up, slowly but surely. Once again, thanks to Keren, I discovered the Hebrew version of Overheard called Gunav L’oznai, Tzitutim Shel Tzitutim, which Morfix tells us roughly, very roughly, translates to “found out about, quotes from eavesdropping”.


Here are some recent “overheards” that I picked from the Gunav site.



Officer 1: Tell me, how do you say pistachios in English?

Officer 2: I don’t think they eat them in English…



Can you come over her for a second, like for 10 seconds, for a second?
