A laughable request but, what harm can come?

Someone had something like this phrase said to them. It is Hungarian. Spelling is a total guess (Did I mention it was said, not written?)

Does it mean anything to you? Apparently, it might be a cuss, swear or insult.

Good, I am going to hijack the thread then

This is a picture I took in Tokaj last year. Can you translate?



We tried Google translator, but somehow I was never fully convinced by the results.

Thanks.

Looking at the jar "hole" makes sense - perhaps it doesn't sound good in translation, but pun in obvious.

Sorry Jimmy. Didn't see this before now.

That sure looks like it could be what was heard.

Thanks!

So, what is your opinion on my phrase? And ideas what a Hungarian might commonly say?

I cant say i clearly understand that, but first part looks like f*** (Bassza meg)
abonyed?? Maybe your mother?? (anyad)

In the case it is an insult. Without a context i may misunderstand this...

Bocsásd meg maybe? (Forgive)

abonyed?? bonyolít? Forgive for making things harder??
