I did one to someone (I'll keep the language anonymous).
He (a Canadian) wanted to know how to say 'cucumber' so he could ask for it in the dining room. As it turns out, the word for cucumber is rather odd and cumbersome.
Since he did know the colors in that language, I gave him and expression that sounded more reasonable aNd correct, which translated to "Green Penis". With a big smile on his face, he blurted out his request.
The look on the waitress' face was classic!* More priceless than anything Mastercard could muster.
Anyone watched the BBC series? If you care for my opinion it was one of the weakest productions I have seen from the Beeb, usually their output is of consistently high quality. Incoherent story and no particular production values. Season one finished recently, apparently there is no decision yet on a second season.
It was flawed, but ok. Definitely seen worse. I liked the season ending! (No spoilers...) I was wondering how they were going to handle that. The story seemed perfectly coherent to me (even if somewhat scientifically implausible...)
Well I misphrased that a bit. I did like the conspiracy side of the story but I think the way the characters behaved often did not make sense. I have already ejected the irritating points from my cache so I cannot give any examples ATM.
An autogyro, probably not really practical in any role. I would prefer to keep a small practical car for every day stuff, like going shopping. But I would prefer to fly to work, every day stuff or not.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
