Freudian Slip

So here's something funny.

I now know enough Estonian to make a Freudian slip.

We were talking about the budget and how we were relieved that the shutdown had been averted so we didn't lose our pay.

What I meant to say was:

"Tänan Jumalele" or Thank God.

What I actually said was:

"Tänan rumalele" or Thank Stupid.

You can just make of that what you will.

Sounds like you have enough Estonian for a philosophical debate now.
