Boven de pet

A quote by Dutch comedian, singer & writer Toon Hermans, refering to the proverb “boven de pet gaan”, which is similar to “flies over the head” (as in: beyond comprehension). Quite some words in this sentence end on an r, just use one which is most comfortable to you! Don’t try to imitate my attempt at an r!
er = there / at that place
gaat = goes (second and third person singular)
meer = more
boven = above (or upper)
pet = cap
eronder = underneath
Hope this helps!

Klokje

We’ve had a variation on “home, sweet home” earlier on this profile. But here’s another proverb with the same meaning.
zoals = zo (so) + als (as / like)
klokje = klok (clock) + -(t)je (diminuative suffix)
thuis = home
tikt = ticks, from “tikken” (to tick)
nergens = nowhere
Hope this helps!
