I work with a younger woman who was born and raised in India. She is an awesome lady and we get along well. When she gets mad she says, "crap" but it comes out something like this (roll the r's)........crrrrrrrrap. I always laugh, then she laughs and then she's not mad anymore.

Several years ago I worked in a shop where a few Vietnamese mechanics worked. One of them, Hai Nguyen, had atrocious English skills, having come here with the "boat people" in the 1970's/1980's and then living in the enormous Viet community in the LA area, he didn't learn English very well until he worked with me. I was always helping him with pronunciation and grammar and before long he would come to me for all of his language questions. One day he came to me and asked me something about a shifter part, but the way he said it it sounded like he said "sipter" (note that in his native language they do not have many of the sounds we find in English, so it is very challenging for ESL speakers to say many of the words we have. Also, English to Vietnamese and vice-verse is one of the more difficult linguistic challenges out there).

Anyhow, i couldn't quite understand what he was saying between my poor hearing and his poor English, so he wrote it down so I could read it. I looked at what he wrote and with a bit of frustration (and my voice often sounds a bit frustrated to begin with, so I sound downright angry when I am truly frustrated) I said "Say 'Sh!t'!" and he, a bit alarmed by my apparent anger, blurts out a perfect 'Sh!t!!!', well, a few of the other mechanics took notice of the activity, and of Hai swearing at me, so they cam over to see what was going on.

Next I said "OK, now say 'fu*k!'" and he blurts out a perfect 'fu*k!!!' (by now he is grinning because this big Viking-looking dude is telling him to swear at work!).

Then I tell him to say each word again, together and he does. The I tell him to take the 'sh' sound from sh!t and the "fff" sound from fu*k and put them together, then finish with a "ter" and he said a perfect "shifter" to well-earned applause from the crew.

Hai was quite proud of his newly discovered pronunciation tools and for a long time afterwards you could her him muttering aloud "Sh!t fu*k" as he walked around the shop.

Police: Man leaves pig wearing sweatpants trapped in hot car

SEATTLE -- Bringing just a touch of the absurd to the usual, tragic summertime story of pets left alone in hot cars, one of the animals found unattended by officers Saturday in Seattle was a pig wearing sweatpants.

According to the Seattle Police Department, a passerby called 911 around 9 p.m. when they saw a small dog and a half-naked pot-bellied pig in a car.

The passerby opened the car's unlocked doors to get the animals some air, but with outside temperatures around 86 degrees officers still arrived to find the dog panting and the pig lethargic, according to police.

In addition to the animals, officers reportedly found empty food and water bowls and feces in the car. Plus, the owner of the car left his keys in the ignition, which is apparently illegal, according to police.

Officers gave the animals fresh water and then located the car's owner in a bar down the street, where he'd been for around 45 minutes.

According to police, the agitated man demanded officers show him where they found feces, and they did.

Officers reminded the man not to leave pets in unventilated spaces without food and water and turned the case over to Renton Animal Control for investigation.

Very strange, Indeed. Pig poop in his car? THAT'LL teach him to leave animals in his hot car. Pigs do not tolerate heat very well at all.

Its illegal to leave your keys in the ignition? WTF?

It probably has something to do with preventing theft. I guess if you leave the keys in the ignition then anybody who takes it can't be blamed.
