Should I start slapping everytime an Englishman uses the wrong gender on French furniture?
It is an Englishman's duty to speak foreign languages badly, with the exception of extinct languages such as Sanskrit, Aramaic or Doric Greek.

Huh? I was just trying to Put My Thoughts Down On Paper. After I Back the Camper out of the Garage and Say Goodbye to Mr. Brown, I was going to Plant Some Corn and then Send Some Cigars Back to Cuba.

I have to say, sir, that both Englishmen and Germanmen have the most adorable bad accent/grammar when speaking Latin-based languages.

It is so cute, I feel like squishing their cheeks because of their lack of ability to pronounce "ng" "nh" "ão" "rr" and correct gender of objects. (has lead to some awkward situations)

How on earth did man ever made it to the moon
By using their loaf, some scientists devised a rocket with three slices. After each slice was cut off it was then toasted. The project cost a lot of bread. Man.

This thread reminds me of a thrash metal band I once wanted to found:
The Breads. Their album would have obviously been called Slices of Death.
A (loaf of) bread cut into slices with lots of blood, great album cover.

Mr. Breakfast, Aramaic is not an extinct language. We have neighbors who claim to be Arameans by descent, and they speak Aramaic. Granted, it's Neo-Aramaic, but, after all, we don't speak Old High German any more either but still call it German.

Generally agreeing, don´t worry. However:
Last time I was in High Wallis, I actually wondered about that...

I know whatya mean bro. And for absolutely mysterious reasons, Radio and TV DRS seem to prefer native speakers of that extreme form of Höchstalemannisch as announcers and the like.
