Va doue benniget!

Interjection USED Frequently BY Almost Everyone

(my blessed god) • It literally means "my blessed god." Even though "benniget" isn't a common word to say "blessed," everyone around me (in Bretagne) uses it from time to time. It's used like "oh my god !" Older people, who speak more Breton than French use it often. The younger generation, however, sometimes use it in a funny or ironic way because there isn't a lot of breton speakers nowadays.
