    This is a hoot ....... sad, because it is TRUE ....... but a hoot!!!!
    By the time you read through this YOU WILL UNDERSTAND "TENJOOBERRYMUDS"....

    In order to continue getting-by in America (our home land), we all need to learn the NEW English language! Practice by reading the following conversation until you are able to understand the term "TENJOOBERRYMUDS".

    With a little patience, you'll be able to fit right in.
    Now, here goes...

    The following is a telephone exchange between maybe you as a hotel guest and call room-service somewhere in the good old USA today.......

    Room Service : "Morrin. Roon sirbees."

    Guest : "Sorry, I thought I dialed room-service."

    Room Service: " Rye. Roon sirbees...morrin! Joowish to oddor sunteen???"

    Guest: "Uh...... Yes, I'd like to order bacon and eggs."

    Room Service: "Ow July den?"

    Guest: ".....What??"

    Room Service: "Ow July den?!?.... pryed, boyud, poochd?"

    Guest: "Oh, the eggs! How do I like them? Sorry.. scrambled, please."

    Room Service: "Ow July dee baykem? Crease?"

    Guest: "Crisp will be fine."

    Room Service: "Hokay. An Sahn toes?"

    Guest: "What?"

    Room Service: "An toes. July Sahn toes?"

    Guest: "I.... don't think so.."

    RoomService: "No? Judo wan sahn toes???"

    Guest: "I feel really bad about this, but I don't know what 'judo wan sahn toes' means."

    RoomService: "Toes! Toes!.....Why Joo don Juan toes? Ow bow Anglish moppin we bodder?"

    Guest: "Oh, English muffin!!! I've got it! You were saying 'toast'... Fine...Yes, an English muffin will be fine.."

    RoomService: "We bodder?"

    Guest: "No, just put the bodder on the side."

    RoomService: "Wad?!?"

    Guest: "I mean butter... just put the butter on the side."

    RoomService: "Copy?"

    Guest: "Excuse me?"

    RoomService: "Copy...tea...meel?"

    Guest: "Yes. Coffee, please... and that's everything."

    RoomService: "One Minnie. Scramah egg, crease baykem, Anglish moppin, we bodder on sigh and copy ... rye??"

    Guest: "Whatever you say."

    RoomService: "Tenjooberrymuds."

    Guest: "You're welcome"

    Remember I said "By the time you read through this YOU WILL UNDERSTAND 'TENJOOBERRYMUDS' "......and you do, don't you!

    And you thought you didn’t speak a foreign language!!

    That went around our company back when we were spending some time in China...the operator/room service person was Chinese.

    Thanks for the laugh again, brings back memories of being a roundeye in a very strange place.

    Funny, but not really.

    Its making fun of people for whom English is not their first language, BUT ARE TRYING TO MAKE AN EFFORT TO LEARN ENGLISH!!

    I hear people on this site bitch and moan all the time about immigrants coming to this country and not learning the language, then this little gem makes fun of the very thing they're bitching and moaning about.

    Ever go to another country to work? I have. Most people in other countries APPRECIATE those who make an effort to learn their language, and applaud it, not make fun of it. Even if they butcher the language, like I'm pretty sure I did.

    The majority of these people learn the basics and never try to improve further. I think that that's the problem.
