Cultural Learnings For Make Benefit The Foreign Learners Of English

Spotted this rather amusing exchange in an online camera forum. Some background: Cristox (German) is complimenting Linda (English) on her fine cat, a picture of whom (left) she posted to demonstrate the abilities of her new camera.


"Cristox wrote: > BTW nice pussy you have linda."

"Thank you. His name is Micky. ... perhaps in future you shouldn't compliment an English woman on her pussy. Her husband might get quite the wrong idea!"
