Learning Today’s English

This from someone for whom English is a third language!

You need to understand “Tenjooberrymuds”!

I was recently in Vancouver and decided to learn the Chinese language, so I could understand the check-outs at McDonalds.

My next move is to learn (East) Indian, so I can understand my doctors and the person who answers the phone when I have a warranty problem.

Yep, by the time you read this, You too will be able to understand the 1st line. “TENJOOBERRYMUDS”…

In order to continue getting-by in Canada (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 an example telephone exchange between you as a hotel guest and call room-service somewhere in the good old Canada 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.”

Room Service: “No? Judo wan sahn toes???”

Room Service: “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.”

Room Service: “We bodder?”

Room Service: “Wad?!?”

Room Service: “One Minnie. Scramah egg, crease baykem, Anglish moppin, we bodder on sigh and copy …. Rye??”
