Now -- as you know -- we're currently living in Switzerland, the land of many languages!
I pointed out to my kids the other day how funny it is that the German word for cold (kalt) sounds a lot like the Italian word for hot (caldo). So we invented a joke dialog in which a German and an Italian are debating about the weather on a hot day:
Italian: Fa caldo.
German: Nein! Es ist nicht kalt, es it heiss!
(and so on, ad infinitum, for lots of laughs...)
Well just today, my little Leo (who just turned 7), used this same formula to invent his own joke! He noticed that the German word for fast (schnell) sounds an awful lot like the English word snail (something not fast at all!):
English: Look, that is a snail.
German: Nein! Das ist nicht schnell! Das ist langsam!
(and so on, ad infinitum, for lots of laughs... ;^) )
