A friend of mine enjoys stumping me with various languages unavailable through MT. I don't like being stumped His latest trick is using a more remote Bavarian dialect (dei Boarisch). If anyone cares to translate, I'd be very appreciative.

Here's his latest...

not sure if I´m able to exactly convey the meaning... Feb 9, 2009

but here´s an approximate translation....

I could laugh my head off/(crack up), that´s extremely funny - where did you get that from?

...although "extremely funny" gets the meaning of "zum schiaßn" across, it´s not exactly it. It´s just on of those expressions a "native speaker" of whatever dialect would just naturally associate with a particular feeling or meaning....which I personally can´t convey/put into words...
Maybe some other native of Bavaria comes up with a better explanation

I believe "schießen" here does not mean shooting but something that makes also noise but is unpleasant for those standing behind the person in question.
