Rosetta Stoned

Post by lbonanomi » Fri Apr 27, 2012 12:41 am

The American bolted half-naked down the crumbling stairs as soon as he had smelled smoke. He shouted in newly learned German for assistance:

“My hovercraft is full of eels!”

A working telephone was as unlikely as an electrician in an unlicensed hostel. The manager’s latest late night wiring bodge had only needed three days before starting a fire.

“My hovercraft, jelly donuts!”

The early morning passersby only glared at him. Tears began running down his cheeks as he waved his arms. Couldn’t anyone understand him!?

In the communal bedroom, his bootlegged Rosetta Stone DVDs started to warp from the heat.
Go 'pods.
