No Speak English July 2, 2016Posted by nrhatch in Humor, Joke.
A Russian woman married a Canadian gentleman and they lived happily-ever-after in Toronto.
The woman was not very proficient in English.
She managed to communicate with her husband, but problems arose when she shopped for groceries.
Before going to the store, she would ask her husband the correct words to use, but she often grew flustered when ordering and forgot them. Or maybe they just flew the coop.
Anyway, one day she wanted chicken legs from the butcher. Since the words “chicken legs” had vanished into thin air, she clucked like a chicken and lifted her skirt to show her legs.
Her butcher got the message and gave her chicken legs.
A few days later, she needed to buy chicken thighs.
As usual, she couldn’t recall the right words so she clucked like a chicken and lifted her skirt to point to her thighs.
The butcher understood again and gave her chicken thighs.
Over time, she acted out similar pant-oh-mines for “chicken breast” and “butt steak.” The butcher always enjoyed their exchanges.
After several weeks of playing charades with the butcher, the woman wanted to buy pork sausages.
Sure she would be unable to figure out how to communicate this to the butcher on her own, she brought her husband to the store with her.
The butcher leaned over the counter, “Good morning, Mrs. Trebek. What can I get for you today?”
In reply, she pointed to her husband who took the cue.
He stepped up to the counter and smiled.
“My wife would like a pound of hot sausage links, please.”
Aah . . . that’s better!
