This is why you should learn Spanish...
Sunday in Sydney Australia, We get the Sunday paper and my wife tells me that in it she read 'the best joke of the week', but she can't understand it! So I read it...and cracked up!
A newly arrived Spaniard goes into a George st (Sydney) Menswear store to buy socks. "Quiero calcetines," says the man. "I don't speak Spanish, but we have some very nice suits over here," says the salesgirl, "no, no quiero trajes. quiero calcetines," says the man. "Well, these shirts are on sale this week," declares the saleswoman. "No, no quiero camisetas.Quiero calcetines," the man repeats. As they pass the underwear counter, the man spots a display of socks and happily grabs a pair. Holding them up he proclaims, "Eso si que es" !" " Well, if f you could spell out 'socks' why didn't you do that in the first place?" asks the exasperated woman...!
Reminds me of the two Spanish Firemen. José and Hose B. (works better said rather than written)
