TENDJEWBERRYMUD

Tendjewberrymud (READ THIS OUT LOUD) Reminds me of a taxi ride I had in New York, where the driver from a Latin American country talked to me non-stop during the 20-minute ride and I managed to piece together perhaps half a dozen words, despite being a linguist, worldwide traveler and used to a multitude of accents. You must read this aloud (for the full effect). Just say any unfamiliar words phonetically. It's amazing, you will understand what 'tendjewberrymud' means by the end of the conversation. This has been nominated for best email of 1999. The following is a telephone conversation between a hotel guest and room-service, at a hotel in Asia. The call was recorded and later published in the Far East Economic Review. Here goes. . . . Room Service (RS): "Morny. Ruin sorbees" Guest (G): "Sorry, I thought I dialed room-service" RS: "Rye . . . Ruin sorbees . . . morny! Djewish to odor sunteen??" G: "Uh . . . yes . . . I'd like some bacon and eggs" RS: "Ow July den?" G: "What??" RS: "Ow July den?. . . pry, boy, pooch?" G : "Oh, the eggs!

I recommend that you read the instruction manual, front to back, before you attempt to put it together and when you actually do, make sure you tighten every bolt and include every screw. rc helicopterOne missing screw or loose bolt can throw the whole helicopter off and send it crashing to the ground because it is unbalanced. The 2AA ProPolymer led flashlight model features a .5 Watt, 30,000-hour lifetime High Flux led that provides an output of 25 lumens typical and works with Streamlight's proprietary deep-dish parabolic reflector to provide a focused beam, while also optimizing peripheral lighting. Offering a continuous runtime of 18 hours, the light uses two included 1.5 volt AA alkaline cells. The led flashlights model features the same convenient pushbutton tail switch as the incandescent model.
