The hardest safety feature to correct is the nut that holds the steering wheel.

A pirate walks into a bar, and he's got a steering wheel sticking out of his pants. The bartender sees him and asks, "Hey, what's that steering wheel doing there?" The pirate says, "Aaarrrr, it's driving me nuts."

Same punchline, but the joke at least makes sense (even if it isn't much funnier). [Wink]

You beat my confidence when you laughed about my failing English. Shame on you as virtual society!

Not really logical. It's based on a pun involving slang. Be aware that many jokes don't translate well. I don't know any French, but I'm pretty sure my joke would make no sense in that language.

I'm willing to give you a lot of slack if you are still learning English. It probably would have been wise to make some mention of it earlier, though.

Yeah, puns are notoriously hard to translate.

So Plcaga here's why this joke works better than yours. "Nuts" is a slang for testicles. (I don't know in France, but in Quebec, "noix" can be used in this way too, altough it's less common than in English.) Then, as you'll probably learn come the next "talk like a pirate" day, "me" can be pirate-talk for "my". So you can guess the steering wheel is attached to the pirate's private parts - and not being a guy, I can only imagine something that heavy dangling there _can_ drive a guy nuts (as in crazy). So the answer fully works both figuratively (in proper English) and literarly (in slang).

I force myself to learn at least 2-5 new words in English. I don't know if it's the ideal way of learning English, but I believe it's very important so learning 2-5 words every day isn't such a bad thing.

Thank you for the explanation.

Chocolate

It takes less than a minute Work this out as you read ...


1. First, pick the number of times a week that! you would like to have chocolate
(more than once but less than 10)

2. Multiply this number by 2 (just to be bold)

3. Add 5

4. Multiply it by 50 -- I'll wait while you get the calculator.

5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1756 ....
If you haven't, add 1755.

6. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.

You should have a three digit number.

The first digit of this was your original number
(i.e., how many times you want to have chocolate each week).

The next two numbers are
YOUR AGE! (Oh YES, it is!!!!!)


THIS IS THE ONLY YEAR (2006) IT WILL EVER WORK, SO SPREAD IT AROUND
WHILE IT LASTS
