    I'm sure we all have things that make us laugh out loud.
    Just name something that amuses you, No a-z necessary.

    Misunderstandings due to false language interpretations between people of different nationalities. When I first arrived in England in 1948 I heard somebody say "we are having an early spring there is a ladybird in the garden". Thinking she was referring to a bird I asked: "how do you know it is a lady? I couldn't understand why they laughed so much and they never let me forget my blunder during the next 10 years I lived in England.

    Mia, in England "a ladybird" is a small brightly coloured beetle (insect) marked with black spots.

    Ah, what we call a ladybug in the U.S. :idea:

    ... Hearing young kids mispronounce words. Like bisketti for spaghetti.

    Seeing my chubby boy Dutch,(he's not fat, he's fluffy!) laying on his back, legs spread to the side wanting attention, I laugh every time!
    Or my husband answeringing me as we're walking into a store after a long car trip, I always say " I have to go to the bathroom" and he always answers (and I always laugh out loud) "I don't, I'm going right now!"

    I'm with you on this. My nephews are all grown men, in their 30s and one is 41. They think nothing of letting one rip whenever and my eldest nephew could fuel a rocket with his. I always crack-up. :lol2::clap:

    When I'm riding with my sister and she gets inpatient with other drivers. She rarely swears but when another driver does something she thinks is stupid or unsafe she uses every word in the book, including the F word. So funny to hear this stuff coming out of her mouth. :censored::yelling::angryfire::fuming:

    The word "infusion" in french means "tisane"
    In 1976 living in South Africa when a lady guest refused coffee at our home my french husband Pierre asked her "Would you like an infusion, madam?" When very shocked she replied "I beg your pardon, sir?" I almost dropped the tray with the coffee cups I was holding standing by them and had to rush back to the kitchen I was laughing so much.

    Our guests that evening were not close friends but people we were expected to receive now and then since my husband was representing his company in
    South Africa. Had she being a close friend the misunderstanding would have been less embarrassing.

    PS. The word "infusion" was interpreted by the lady in question as "enema"

    I agree. The older seasons are better but the newer ones are still good. RIP John Dunsworth. :sniffle:

    HA!!!! I'll bet she thought why is he asking me THAT??

    Gosh Drina, where haven't you lived?? You've really seen the world.


    Whenever I think of the commercial from the 80s, "Where's the beef?"

    Yes Mia, I have been around quite a bit but not since december 2010 when I returned to Uruguay.

    Another anecdote on misunderstandings from language translations comes to my mind regarding a Spanish lady I knew while living in Australia. She was very hurt one day because she thought her young daughter had insulted her callling her "basura" (filth). She was in fact translating from the word "rubbish" the youngster had used just to disagree with her mother's opinion on her australian friends.

    I have always found these language misunderstandings more amusing than ordinary jokes.

    When the Vincie girl smacks Callie. She is 18 and a half but is the boss. Callie is about 20 pounds and Vincie about 8. The smack is more of a love smack, claws closed.

    When one of the cats will drag something large through the house. Until recently, it was just wand toys. That was pretty funny as the stick would be banging into furniture along the way. Now Buddy has taken to dragging a large motorized toy everwhere. He's like Linus with his blue blanket!:lol: It cracks me up every time.:biggrin:

    Sombra makes me laugh when she hides ready to pounce on an imaginary prey that she expects me to provide running on the floor hanging from a wand. As soon as she catches it she runs back to the hiding place ready to repeat the "hunt". Just now she is recovering from a bad cold but normally she will "hunt" non stop until I am exhausted.
