    Talking No Speaka English

    A bus stops and two Italian men get on. They sit down and engage in an animated conversation. The lady sitting behind them ignores them at first, but her attention is galvanized when she hears one of the men say the following:

    "Emma come first. Den I come. Den two asses come together. I come once-a-more. Two asses, they come together again. I come again and pee twice. Then I come one lasta time."

    "You foul-mouthed sex obsessed swine," retorted the lady indignantly. "In this country....we don't speak aloud in public places about our sex lives... "

    "Hey, coola down lady," said the man. "Who talkin' abouta sexa? I'm a justa tellin' my frienda how to spella Mississippi'."

    Nope.

    It's 5 lines if you include the quote from kermi.

    If you are talking about lines you should consider the empty lines as lines also, I mean they have '\n', don't they!?

    Anyways, nice joke...
    I've heard many jokes about Italian people speaking English... Do they speak English that bad!
    none...

    Actually it should be a \r\n, which is a CRLF(in C/C++. In ASCII it is 13 & 10, in that order).

    I give it 10/10 because I couldn't do better, and don't know how the joke could've been better.

    Whats wrong with one liners? There's lots here: just a thought...

    From the "Read This First"

    >>>
    8. One line posts are discouraged, especially pointless ones. Sometimes they are needed but rarely. Though things like "thank yous" to people who help you with their code are always welcome.

    Then wouldn't things like "Pretty good." also be a form of compliment?

    Okay, I'll stop argueing now.

    I'd say that was quite funny, well you also have to take into account im a 15 year old o.O. - I thought it was a great joke - at the moment =P. I'll be sure to share that with a couple of other immature friends at school!

    So, take it up with Kermi3. It was his post, I only pointed you to the relevent rules.
