3 0r 4 Languages? "I speak four languages," proudly boasted the door man of a hotel in Rome to an American guest. "Yes, four - Italian, French, English, and American." "But English and American are the same," protested the guest. "Not at all," replied the man. "If an Englishman should come up now, I should talk like this: 'Oh, I say, what extraordinarily shocking weather we're having! I dare say there'll be a bit of it ahead.' But when you came up I was just getting ready to say: 'For the love o' Mike! Some day, ain't it? Guess this is the second flood, all right.'

There once was a chauvinist Cockney,
Who boasted and bragged 'round the clock; he
Would say it was tinglish
To speak proper English,
But wrote feeble verse that was knock-knee.hehe smilie
