Today I participated in a humorous speech competition (and won second place, thank you very much!)
To keep the crowd entertained while the judges tallied the ballots, the moderator brought up all the contestants to be interviewed one by one.
He got to a woman who had given a speech about her life as an American in Greece, and with his questions the moderator invited her to give the audience some more information about Greek words, phrases, and gestures.
“Well in Greece you never do this,” she told us, as she made the hand gesture that in America means “bye-bye”.
“Why not?” asked the moderator.
“Because in Greece that means, ‘I crap on your next five generations.”
