Learning English is HARD. Especially when its your second language

This is bound to offend some people but it is pretty funny. My Apologies to those who no do find this funny, but as a person growing up in Sri Lanka and learning 3 languages at the same time while growing up I can really appreciate how hard it is to learn a new language as well as how funny it can be.

Miss Teen USA 2007 – Miss South Carolina says that the US needs to help improve the education in Asia!

I usually don’t just go ahead and link to something without some sort of intro or write up of my own, but this video is pretty self explanatory. It has already gained quite a bit of fame from Boing Boing, to Australian news stations to emails. So here’s my part in spreading the news.

We need more maps!

Hmmm how what more can I add?

Joke time – Speedy Seniors

Sitting on the side of the highway waiting to catch speeding drivers, a State Police Officer sees a car puttering along at 22 MPH. He thinks to himself, “This driver is just as dangerous as a speeder!” So he turns on his lights and pulls the driver over. Approaching the car, he notices that there are five old ladies — two in the front seat and three in the back – eyes wide and white as ghosts.

The driver, obviously confused, says to him, “Officer, I don’t understand, I was doing exactly the speed limit! What seems to be the problem?”

“Ma’am,” the officer replies, “You weren’t speeding, but you should know that driving slower than the speed limit can also be a danger to other drivers.”

“Slower than the speed limit?” she asked. No sir, I was doing the speed limit exactly… Twenty-Two miles an hour!” the old woman says a bit proudly. The State Police officer, trying to contain a chuckle explains to her that “22″ was the route number, not the speed limit. A bit embarrassed, the woman grinned and thanked the officer for pointing out her error

“But before I let you go, Ma’am, I have to ask… Is everyone in this car ok? These women seem awfully shaken and they haven’t muttered a single peep this whole time.” the officer asks.

“Oh, they’ll be alright in a minute officer. We just got off Route 119.”

A Sri Lankan Hell – Joke time.

This is a different version of Sri Lankans in Hell – never yet seen one on Sri Lankans in Heaven…………

A Sri Lankan dies and goes to hell.
There he finds that there is a different hell for each country.
He goes to the German hell and asks, “What do they do here?”
He is told, “First they put you in an electric chair for an hour.

Then they lay you on a bed of nails for another hour.
Then the German devil comes in and whips you for the rest of the day.”

The man does not like the sound of that at all, so he moves on.
He checks out the USA hell as well as the Russian hell and many more.
He discovers that they are all more or less the same as the German hell.

Then he comes to the Sri Lankan hell and finds that there is a long
line of people waiting to get in. Amazed, he asks, “What do they do here?”
He is told, “First they put you in an electric chair for an hour.
Then they lay you on a bed of nails for another hour.
Then the Sri Lankan devil comes in and whips you for the rest of the day.”

“But that is exactly the same as all the other hells – why are there so many people waiting to get in?”

“Because the Electricity Board is on strike and maintenance is so bad that the electric chair does not work. A Minister has stolen all the nails from the bed, and the DEVIL is a former Govt. servant. He comes in, signs the register and then goes to the canteen ………”
