(Fabienne @ May 17 2005,06:01) Not that I want to defend Ernest, but he did say German was his first foreign language, before English, and since grammatically speaking, that d word would have been an adjective in that sentence, I really think he mistakenly used the German word (spelled the same as the d word in English) that means fat. bald, short, fat men.
No.  No one who has read his other posts on such subjects can believe that he confused the German word for fat with the American word for Johnson.
Well, it's happened to me... I meant "thick" in English and used the d-word, realized it only later.

Reminds me of a funny story from many years ago when I was first learning Spanish. I had just moved to Puerto Rico and was on a date with a young lady who spoke no English. She was Catholic and I am Protestant. I was explaining to her some of the differences between how the two churches worship. I told her that sometimes in Protestant churches, the preacher invites people up to pray at the altar at the end of the service. However, I mistakenly used the word for urinate (orinar) instead of the word for prayer (orar) and told her in Protestant churches the pastor invites people up to take a piss on the altar at the end of the service.

LOL... maybe in the Church of Marc37: "Drink this ___ for it is my pee" -- "No thanks"...

Did she make a face? I was talking once to a young French kid in the US whose English accent was poor. At one point, he said (I heard): My sister is also married to an American. She lives in misery. (She lives in Missouri)

Having worked for a company based there I'd say that's a fair assessment more than a mispronunciation.

Actually she crossed herself and said: "Ay, dios mio."
