LISTEN: English as She Is Spoke: The World's Worst Phrasebook


[Read the post]


And here I thought the Hungarian phrasebook was the worst one ever.

Side note: interesting subtitles.


I was very amused that my father’s Hindi phrasebook had the phrase…“Please point the gun in the other direction.” Probably something that you don’t need every day, but when you need it you NEED it.


“My hovercraft is full of eels.”


Mr. Leuchtag: Mareichtag and I are speaking nothing but English now.

Mrs. Leuchtag: So we should feel at home when we get to America.

Mrs. Leuchtag: Ten watch.

Mr. Leuchtag: Such watch?!

Carl: Hmm. You will get along beautiful in America, mm-hmm.
