More Fun With International Communication

One of my Russian friends, a nutty little cutie-pie who is well-known for imitating pterodactyls when she's bored, called me the other night.

"What does 'Amstel' mean in English?" she asked in Russian -- she doesn't really speak English.

"It's a Dutch beer," I replied in my horrendous RUssian.

She considered this. "It doesn't make any sense. You know that Jennifer Lopez song, "Amstel, amstel, Jenny on the block?" She's drinking beer?"

Ha ha.

Ha-ha! that's nice!

How have you become acquainted with her if she almost doesn't speak English?
