International Communication

So I was just at a trendy cafe/cofee-shop type place with my "girlfriend" and one of the teachers from school. This cafe is in an "entertainment complex" which contains a movie theater, and I noticed that the new movie HANNIBAL RISING was playing, starting today.

"Do you like Dr. Lecter?" I asked my "girlfriend."

"Yes," she said. "Her and Heidi Klum are very cool."

We eventually determined that she thought I had been talking about Carmen Electra.

Which, apart from being pretty funny conceptually, is a reasonable mistake, as far as listening comprehension goes.
