...don't say it in Russian/ don't say it in German....
Understood that a gown is a frock, a bar is a pub, a tire’s a tyre, a suitcase is a trunk, a trunk’s a boot, a truck’s a lorry, a sweater’s a jumper, my fanny is not for sitting, and you can knock me up without having sex with me.
If a fry is a chip, a chip is a crisp, and a cookie is a biscuit, what’s a biscuit?
And don’t tell me a scone, because I’ve had one, and it’s not.
(Broken English; Marianne Faithfull)
