Thank you for the Flowers


Recommended Posts

I love that expression, "danke für die Blumen", the literal translation is "thank you for the flowers" but it is more something like "thank you for the compliments" .

What I love about it is that it is more used with a bit of irony, like when someone gives you a back handed compliment or tells you something bad about you. 

I love the irony twists because german idioms are usually very rigid.
