A U.S. Navy Admiral was attending a naval conference that included Admirals from the U.S., English, Canadian, Australian and French Navies. At a cocktail reception, he found himself standing with a large group of Officers that included personnel from most of those countries. Everyone was chatting away in English as they sipped their drinks but a French admiral suddenly complained that, 'whereas Europeans learn many languages, Americans learn only English.' He then as ked, 'Why is it that we always have to speak English in these conferences rather than speaking French?'

Without hesitating, the American Admiral replied 'Maybe it's because the Brits, Canadians, Aussies and Americans arranged it so you wouldn't have to speak German.'

Из домашнего задания

Уже в четвертый раз удивляюсь некоторым заданиям для первоклассников, где нужно нарисовать картинку по написанному предложению. То есть, я точно бы осталась на 2-ой год, если бы мне пришлось выполнять такое домашнее задание. Но мои дети, к счастью, умнее и талантливей меня.
Уже которую неделю смеемся над вот этим. Особенно над Dick is not back yet. Как такое можно изобразить?
