More funny Swedish words

I learnt a funny word today whilst doing my Swedish homework, its only funny if you are familiar with English slang words though.

The word is prick and is used in the following context. Vi ses prick fem! It simply means we will see each other at five sharp or five on the dot.

This does clear something up for me. Near the office is a cracking little unpretentious Thai restaurant, they do a cheap but delicious lunch menu. But the name of the restaurant is a little worrying for English speakers as its called Prick Thai which of course now translates to Thai food express or something i.e. on the dot or maybe thai food in a flash is better. They are super quick as it happens which is why I like them. However on looking for their website I discovered that prick is also a thai word for a pepper so may be a double meaning.

Anyway thats another funny word for you.
