OMFG in Czech

OMFG! 100 kraťasů za pouhých 250 Kč!
OMFG! 100 pairs of shorts for only 250 Kč (around 10 euros or 13 American dollars on this day)!

Funny how English abbreviations can penetrate other languages. I’m sure that 90% of Czechs who read this, though, have no idea that OMFG means Oh my fucking God, and that it expresses utter surprise. It’s okay to use it in English (I guess), but to use it in other languages and to risk not being understood is not okay.
