Olympic Accents

Postby ozchick » Sun, 24 Aug 2008 1:39 pm

Well we all know how the Germans have trouble pronouncing the letter 'W'. It comes out as a 'V'. The following scenario spells out a possible confusion.
...........................................................................................................

A cleaner was in the changerooms as a swimmer came in wearing the medal he'd just won.
Puzzled, the cleaner asked, "Didn't I see you competing yesterday in a different sport ? Aren't you a pole-volter?"

"No" replied the swimmer, "I'm German- and how did you know my name ?"
'Are you trying to tempt me because I come from the land of plenty?'
