pane see kahvel lauale ja naerata leebelt 

makarone ongi sitt oksendada 

vali parem asjad milles paistad saledam 

vali salendavad sukkpüksid 

salendav korsett 

salendav kontojääk 

salendav omavalitsusüksus 

salendav pisendav vaigistav ühiskond

put your fork back on the table and smile gently

this pasta is nasty to vomit anyway

instead choose things that make you look slimmer

choose slimming tights

choose a slimming corset

a slimming bank balance

a slimming local municipality

a slimming silencing belittling society

Translation: Teele Lember

pose ta fourchette sur la table et souris gentiment

c’est merdique de vomir les pâtes

choisis plutôt des choses qui te rendent plus mince

collants amincissants

corset amincissant

solde bancaire amincissant

municipalité amincissante

société amincissante apaisante rapetissante

Traduction : Antoine Chalvin

leg die vork op tafel en glimlach lieftallig

het is kut om pasta uit te braken

kies liever voor dingen waarin je slanker lijkt

kies voor een slankmakende panty

een slankmakend corset

een slankmakend banksaldo

een slankmakend lokaal bestuur

een slankmakende kleinerende kalmerende maatschappij
