Lost in Translation

Standard

Little Brother (still) says the darndest things.

A while ago I posted the following as a status:

Practising Derms surgery on pig. Yummy!

But in my home language, “derms” means “guts”.

So, Little Brother tells The Family that Big Sister is removing pork gut for med school. Nomnomnom indeed!

The funniest thing is that a few hours later, one of my non-medical friends, ten years Little Brother’s senior, made the same mistake.

And people ask me why I love my country’s many languages…

Oink – look at the face!
