All languages and cultures have some strange sayings.

In Finland we say, You put your shoes in your foot [singular] - not your shoes on, that is.
We also say, Pull your trousers in your foot [singular].

This might be a funny topic? What the heck are Aussies saying? Eh?

Most Filipinos will say "Open the light." instead of "Turn on the light".

How do you open the light? You have a key?

In Philippine language, "open" and "turn on" have one direct translation which is "buksan". It's just a mixed up use of english translation.
