fart is also luck... hell it's difficult to explain ;) maybe fart is just temporary luck... like I don't know... 'ale fart wygrałem 1000zł!' - "what a lucky break, I won 1000zl!" (does it make any sense?)

I found it is similar to English 'lucky break' definition:

en.wiktionary.org/wiki/lucky_break

Yeah fart is more like a slang word I suppose.

i've never heard it translated as fart.

farciarz - a man who's lucky

McCoy is right I guess. At least in Russian "fart" is also luck.

There's a Cafe Fart too, I think it's on the road from Katowice to Wisła. My missus says "fart" is more of a noun than an adjective, so if someone had a bit of luck you could say "to jest fart".

Kutas, LOL. Probably Hungarian :)

Ach, there was a building supplies shop in Budapest called Arucha Cipa, LOL. No joke :)

What's wrong with kutas, Justy? ;) Don't knock it until you've tried it :)

We told the guy at Smakosz that kapusta was tits in English. Mushrooms were pussy and bigos was cock. I could only imagine some foreigners walking in and him offering cock and pussy, LOL.

We were cruel but it was hilarious. He believed us!

My former flatmate tried that on me before - telling me false names of things in Polish. I don't think I ever fell for it, although I was a bit sceptical about a few words that turned out to be true, just because I detected a slightly smirk. The last time I said anything along the lines of...

kapusta was tits in English. Mushrooms were pussy and bigos was cock.

I kept my honesty, if not my modesty and made no mention of cabbage.

When I was in Krakow I had fun taking pictures of things with "Krak" in them. Kraktours, Krakgas, Krakmeat... Maybe sometime I'll post them here.
