Love is blind

Любовь зла, полюбишь и козла

Lyubov’ zla, polyubish’ i kozla

A goat in Oman, December 2018

I’m trying to pull my Russian back out of extinction, so that I can use it on a couple of trips I’m hoping to make. And in the process I found this great saying: “Love is so cruel, you could fall in love with a goat”.

Now I’ve got nothing against goats, especially the cute, shaggy ones I came across in Oman, but in Russian slang a goat refers to a dead-beat man.
