WHat a silly bunt

by Oz_Media In reply to leave it to the brits

Ban't say the letter 'B' as in Bolour, bountry, bobonut? Try using a 'K' in it's place. Kolour, Kountry, Kokonut, see it works!!!

What a silly bunt.

What???

by oneamazingwriter In reply to One Billion Words and you ...

They haven't included words from Beth's Typoese Dictionary? Do they even have the word typoese?

Note: I had college students from England stay in my home one summer, and it took us a week to get through our language barrier. Laughter, though, appears to be the same in any language.

Second note: When I was a girl I lived in Western Massachusetts. My aunt from Boston visited and sent me to the store to get tonic. I returned with Vaseline Hair Tonic and what she had wanted was soda. We lived less than 100 miles apart and still the language difference was something to laugh about!
