    its hard to translate. "vay" is a show of surprise in turkish. It has a meaning like "oh my gosh"
    arif = guy, but in turkish arif sounds more rude.
    serseri = vagrant, punk
    salak = stupid

    so it goes like this:

    vay vagrant guys vay! vay vay stupid guys vay!

    "vay serseri herifler vay, vay salak herifler vay" the right sentence is this.
    herif means man, adult male in a slang way
