I cannot even read Cyrillic. I spent a summer in Croatia and bought my dad a souvenir mug in Sarajevo (I know it's not in Croatia; we took a trip to BiH) that said "Josip Broz Dobar Skroz." Sorry!

ETA: something about Srpska? I tried. Cyrillic has got the best of me yet again.

Hehe, yeah I'm aware of that phrase. I've seen many people wearing T-Shirts with "Josip Broz Dobar Skroz"

BTW, Croatians don't even use cyrillic anymore, because they're Catholic traitors.

I asked if you speak Serbian.

What does the "Josip Broz..." thing mean?

I know Croatians don't use Cyrillic--that's why I can't read it.

"Josip Broz" was the first/real name of Marshal Tito.

And Dobar Skroz?

It's a "well wishing" phrase which doesn't translate to English well.

The literal translation is "well through" but it can be understood as "Josip Broz, forever"

It was relayed to me more along the lines of "America, @#!* Yeah," but I defer to your greater knowledge of the idiom.
