a word of the German Jugendsprache (youth slang) that literally translates to dead pants. Tote Hose can be used to describe a place or an event. But what do dead pants have to do with an event? I’ll show you…
Tote Hose stands for eventlessness or boringness. If you organize a party and nobody is coming then:
- I’m really sorry for you and
- there is tote Hose
You can go to an event with plenty people, but the ambiance is horrible and boring. Here too you use Tote Hose.
- Im Park ist tote Hose
- there is nobody in the park
- Bei Alex Geburtstag war tote Hose
- Alex’s Birthday was lame
I think you get it now!
Feel free to comment any questions or other German sayings that just need some more explanation.
