English vs. Spanish

Welcome Carnival of Comedy seekers!

Sometimes, articles like this just make you wanna bang your head on a steel door for a while and see which dents first. There's a bar owner in the Cincinnati area struggling with this.

Spanglish. That's what I guess someone came up with a term for someone who is bilingual in Spanish & English. Well, I'd like to offer another word.

Instead of taking the "Span" from Spanish and the "glish" from English, I'd like to make it the other way around and take the "Engl" from English and the "ish" from Spanish, leaving the word to be English. There, isn't that easy to remember? That way wherever you go in the USA, you can always remember what language is spoken here without a doubt as to anyone understanding you.

All you non-English speaking guys, how about it? Oh wait, you can't read english either. Bummer.

We have classes for that for a fee.

  • I want to congratulate you on your work here. It may be the best ive seen. I dont like people who dont speak english either. Lets form a cult and when we find someone who doesnt speak english we can give them some jello pudding snacks?

  • Quite humorous old bean. No idea what is with the looney and her pudding snacks, but c'est la vie. The French get pissy if anyone expects them to know their language. Since France is the leftist archtype of Paradise, then the Libs should be on the English only wagon. Maybe if we only spoke Francois, they'd be down for it. Though they would make an exception for "Youths", because they wouldn't want to piss them off and end up driving a Prius Crispy.
