I am reminded of the scene in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade where Indy tells the bad guys that Marcus Brody knows every language and custom from here to Botswana (or whatever), and that Marcus will blend in so well with the natives that the bad guys will never find him.

Cut to Marcus Brody, in a suit, wandering through a marketplace, plaintively calling out, "Hello! Hello! Does anyone here speak English?"

One day I saw a lady I knew and asked her "how was your cruise?" her reply "It was fun except the food was horrible . " really "what did the serve. " " They served Lamb and rice and things like that, so the food was horrible.
