Came up in the progress test, not yet found it in the course:

The horse is not an artist, but an architect.

Classic Duolingo :D

I have no idea if I translated it right, since it doesn't tell you during the test - I think I said something like лошадь не художник, а архитект. When I stumble across it again I suppose I'll find out if I got it right or not!

My dutch course once said 'pardon maar ik ben een banaan" which means "excuse me, but I'm a banana" :D

*Архитектор

I'm glad that the authors of the course do offer some giggles.

Спасибо! I thought архитект didn't seem quite right, but I couldn't for the life of me think why.

Yeah, I know some people hate them, but I love the silly sentences ;D

It's good for the memory, in fact! Contrary to the idea that playing it straight is always the best way, the funnier or more borderline inappropriate or even off-color a sentence is, the more likely you are to remember it. ;-)
