13 things you should never say to a Hungarian

Despite the cliché Hungarians are a pretty happy bunch… except if you say one of these 13 things to them:

Megszentségteleníthetetlenségesked- éseitekért

Of course it doesn’t help that this is often written as “Goulash” on menus but the actual pronunciation is more like gu-y-arsh (y as in yolk, arsh as in marsh).
