Doing a German skill I came across an odd sentence like "The mouse and I learn" which I wasn't sure what it meant. Being on my last question with no hearts left I asked one of my German roommates and he laughed then told everyone else in the room what I had asked him. Way to make me look like an idiot DL :) (got the damn sentence wrong too)

There's a whole collection at the shitduosays tvvitter account: https://twitter.com/shitduosays http://imgur.com/r/shitduolingosays

LMAO I have to follow that. I take screencaps of things I find amusing and put them in my "Fun with Duolingo" folder on fb. Stuff like, "I pesci non mangiano i gatti" and comment with, "I hope to god not."


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SaxyLady

You know you're addicted to Duolingo when you see a bear and wonder if it drinks beer.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/juanmirelez

Or you live in Russia.

That's so clever!! I understand now but it took me a minute because I don't study all of them. :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Devanshi19

i kind of got that your answering in a different language so they know you studied


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hohenems

Multiple different languages. I recognize French (qu'il) and German (in alle von).


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ych0130517

and Spanish (piensa)?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Europe

"Eles" (it's "they" or "them" in Portuguese)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/linguafiqari

perché = italian (why/because)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Anonyduck

Yes, funny. :D I have friends who worry I will end up like the big Rosicrucian chap in Name of the Rose who spoke a mishmash of 5 different languages!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/hagnes

or grandfather eats a bird :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/-MattG-

Das Hähnchen ist ein Vogel.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Awesum_Domo

i dont understand this joke!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dessamator

Here's a hint: Languages!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/sheila.bje

That's cute. I live on the US/Mexican border, we do switch languages all the time. Sometimes the thoughts flow better in Spanish or we only know the word in English.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/-MattG-

Eso nos llamemos Spanglish. Ya tu sabe como es!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/danielley22

or "dein man isst das insekt" is so funny


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Lebdref1

Why do the French never eat two or more eggs? Because in France, one egg is un oeuf.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SaxyLady

I actually did laugh at that. LOL!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/GeekGirl14

ha ! so did I these jokes rock!!!!!!!! :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/-MattG-

lol..I see what you did there.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/lynxlynxlynx

Q: A plus tard? My wife says the "s" is silent in the word "plus", but thee program pronounces it. Which is right? --SomethingHeroic

A: I don't think you have been married very long. The wife is always right independent of the truth. --bsbaixo

"Das Baby mit ein schwarzes Hund sie ersetzen" She replaces the baby with a black dog.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/-MattG-

If you check the French tree, the word "black" is used abundantly that it will make you wonder about the black water, black dog, black cat, black horse, and black lion.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/lilygilder

Sorry ragtime_6, but the German sentence is wrong. It should be "Sie ersetzt das Baby mit einem schwarzen Hund." or alternatively "Das Baby ersetzt sie mit einem schwarzen Hund.".


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ragtime_6

Ok thanks. It's been a while since I've seen that sentence, and google translate is useless when it comes to grammar.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Samsta

I have a joke in Spanish, but it's not related to language learning or Duolingo:

Hay tres clases de personas.

Las que saben contar y las que no.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/lieryan

I don't get the joke. Code switching is very common by multilinguals; there are even places like Hongkong, where you can see television presenters regularly mishmash a mixture of Mandarin, Cantonese, and English in a single sentence without batting an eyelid.

I guess this joke is lost in translation.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/-MattG-

I share the same predicament. I have said Abre le port, faz favor. [Upon being served,] I said, Danke.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Yu-Jie

Yup, we totally do that here in Malaysia--at least us Chinese people. We mash english, chinese, malay and sometimes even some dialects together while speaking :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BreezySummer

Saya tidak mengerti apa yang Anda maksud ._.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/iustitia

I remember sentence: "Your niece is stupid" which was a bit awkward to see in here.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SaxyLady

Lol. I posted that on fb and a Canadian friend of mine said "bête" usually means someone who's never happy and that "stupid" is just "stupide." The more you know! cue rainbow


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BastouXII

bête have a different meaning in France and in Canada : in France, it means "feebleminded", in Canada, it means "bitter", "resentful", "unsympathetic".


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Leskew26058

I c an't read the answer 'cause I haven't gotten very far. I started not long ago.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/kbogovic

You will join us eventually. :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AnnieN82

What do you have to do to not be caught eating chewing gum at Singapore? You have to sing-a-por(e) favor song!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/exocoetus

if I run,I do not eat meat :))


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Megglee

'we do not touch the women' I'm... glad?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Davis-Hamley

This one is the best joke ever: Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them collapses. He doesn't seem to be breathing and his eyes are glazed. The other guy whips out his phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps, "My friend is dead! What can I do?" The operator says "Calm down. I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead." There is a silence, then a shot is heard. Back on the phone, the guy says "OK, now what?"
