Proverb – Serbian

“Ko o cemu kurve o postenju.”

“Hookers are the ones that are talking about morals all the time.”

“In terms if you judge other people. The person who judges other people is the one with the same flaws usually.”

“It’s just a well-known saying. It’s used in conversation.”

The informant is originally from Serbia but has been attending university in Los Angeles, CA for the past two years.

This Serbian proverb is a way of calling one a hypocrite. Like many proverbs, out of context, it contradicts itself, but is intended to be ironic. It is a metaphor for people who have their own faults but still judge others’ morals.
