Je surkiffe.

Je surkiffe.

zhuh sewr-KEEF. Click below to hear this.*

I super-love (it)!

Lifted from the Facebook fan page of an American TV show that is also seen in France. This person really likes the show!

Kiffer is French slang for to like. It’s conjugated like an ordinary first-conjugation (-er) verb, so the je form should properly be spelled kiffe. However, I’ve seen it spelled several ways, including je kif and even je kiif, which is surely a typo.

And je surkiffe? Putting sur- before a verb often means super-. It’s just a way to form a superlative.

So…short and sweet, because je surkiffe what I am doing today! I am cooking all day for a party tonight!
