Wow. Apparently it's also more "American" to have big, um, hair.

Okay, I'll admit something ...

It especially tweaks me when American Indians don't speak English.

Also, it's not enough for all of the various immigrants depicted to be in those English classes. They better damn well look HAPPY about it. Or else.

Well I'd love to hang around and rant some more, but I just purchased some more American flag stickers for my Chrysler that I need to apply. And then I'll go to the mall and suspiciously eye the food service and janitorial workers.

Ciao! (Oops, I mean, "So Long"!)

I learn a lot from you. I didn't know American Indians didn't speak English. It's ok to me if they don't, but they're the only ones. After all, we stole the country from them. They were here first.

American Indians always speak English in the movies. They all say 'How'.

Little Lamb said...

I'm sure some real Indians were used. Though I can't be sure.

Pink said...

I'm very glad to see that no lambs or Indians were harmed in the making of this comment line.

I can't vouch for cowboys though.

Little Lamb said...

Hopefully no one was hurt.

The Phosgene Kid said...

The cowboys were underachievers, it seems, and how. Well, the world needs Pottawatomie Bingo too. Just kidding.

Little Lamb said...

We got it all, Kid! Good cowboys and bad cowboys. All kinds of bingo too.

Hi lamby here are your questions:

Are you truly a lamb or actually a wolf traveling the Web incognito?

Please tell us about a favorite memory?

Have you ever lived in a foreign country or wanted to?

What was the bestest birthday present you have ever received?

What is the one thing about you that outshines all other qualities?

well, was that YOU singin' in that there video?
Kind'a narrow minded, wasn't she? Having been to Europe fer a bit (while m'dad was in the Air Force, we got t'go with him) and I was ever so happy that so many folks spoke english. Especially the candy vendors....

On the other hand, I'm kind'a amazed not more folks speak Mexican...(I'de call it Spanish, 'cept I noticed that it's pretty much seperated when y'see it on kiosks asking what language y'want...) or at least some form of latino....

Me? Heck no. A lil German (vas ist das, ach du lieber, and dunkeshoen) a hair bit o' French (though I can't even remember the two phrases I learned....one was
"It sounds french to me" and I would say it to someone who knows french and ask what it means, and of course, they would say, "it sounds french to me" and I would say," yeah, I know it sounds french, but, I wonder what it means...." You'de be surprised at how long I could keep THAT conversation going....)
And, then, there are about twenty Indian languages from our native american landlords (thank God they don't charge us rent or have very stringent immigrant laws) if not more. I think the Cherokee had the most progressed language using written words as well as the spoken language.

And now, for the grand finale here's a bit of trivia fer ya....
Of the American english language, there are only about fifteen percent pure americanized words, some twenty-five percent England english words, and the rest a mix from French, Germanic (the most) and even Asian languages.
The figures may be somewhat shaky as it has been quite a few moons since I cracked a book in college.

Then again, fer all I know, I may be writting this in Ojibwa and the computer is translating it for me.

(...doubt it.)

You had written once (in case y'didn't see the reply) that you "didn't know what to zay..."
and my reply was simply,
Oh zay can ewe zee?
Which would put us nearere the Dutch language than any other.

Little Lamb said...

boneman!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hugs and kisses to you! No, that wasn't me singing in the video.

Wow! You sure do know A LOT!!!!

boneman said...

not really.
Did a paper on languages back in '75....
more apt would be (if the figures are accurate...) "what a memory!"

Little Lamb said...

How many languages do you speak?
