Thanks, Roger. Not bad at all! (Like I'd know!)

Some years ago, I mentioned that I got so much more out of Monty Python's "Holy
Grail" when subtitles became available on a dvd. Was almost hooted out the forum! Imagine, subtitles for a movie in English!

Saw a movie some time ago that was apparently done in southern Scotland. If it weren't for the subtitles, I would have caught but about half of the words.

Was in Corinth, Mississippi this last summer. Had country ham for breakfast but wasn't provided a knife with which to cut it. I asked the young man behind the counter for a knife. He didn't know what I was talking about. Finally had to resort to cutting motions before he figured out that I wanted a "naahf."

I'll expect that the thoroughly charming waitress had as much difficulty in deciphering what we ordered. Can't deny that there is an air of hospitality down there, although I'll bet we were the subject of more than a few remarks after we had left. It's always recommended to leave a generous tip. Money talks.
