who the fuck does that
De Espanha nem bom vento nem bom casamento.
(From Spain, neither good wind nor good marriage)
This is due to the cold winds from Spain affecting the coastal climate here and the marriage part is due to the part of our history where Spain inherited Portugal through a royal marriage.

Há mouro na costa
(There's a moor on the coast)
Used when you mean to say someone is falling in love.

Also isn't there a saying about Portugal and oranges in Turkey or something? I have no idea what this is about but a Turkish guy who studied here kept referring to us as oranges

In the UK we say " Are you American?" when we see someone getting shot.

Arabic word for "orange" is bortuqal, since Turks have no culture of their own they probably took that word from Arabic.
"Afrancesado" ('someone who acts like a french')

Means metrosexual
>no culture
Nice culture just naming the fruit after the country if it was really you who named it that first
I really want this to be true.
What? No we don't
Where do you live in?
I'm liking this meme so far.
In the US we say "are you Canadian?" when we see a girly boy or a handsome girl
In the US we say "are you Turkish?" when we see a hairy girl or some dogshit on the floor

In USA we say someone is "going Dutch" when they split the bill on a date.
"Dutch oven" can mean either a heavy cooking pot with a lid OR it can mean farting under the covers while trapping someone there.
"French kiss" is an open mouth/deep kiss.
"French braid" is a special kind of braid that starts on the top of your head and gradually incorporates more hair.
"French fries".....DUH!
"French toast" is a kind of breakfast toast where you soak the bread in cinammon/egg mixture before you fry it. Texas toast is the same thing but thicker bread.
We say someone is "quitting cold Turkey" when they quit something immediately (without gradually tapering off).
Not to mention "Turkey" is the big bird we all eat at Thanksgiving! Supposedly because Turks sold the original turkeys!
We say "Brazilian wax" to mean waxing all your public hair off.
"Chinese fire drill" to talk about switching drivers in your car.
"Russian roulette" to talk about using a gun with a single bullet and passing it around and seeing who shoots themselves in the head. (Nobody ever does this IRL afaict its a meme thing).
"Indian summer" when you have a warm fall.
"Smokes like a Turk"
"Lies like a Serb"
"Stupid like a Bosniak"
