why are they not able to understand or read some signs you make them create? They write back and forth in English, but then they don't realize you are making fun of them when you have them create a sign that says "i blow dead goatz"

Why do you think that is?

And great forum and site! love it!

Welcome to Eater, Fairy Dust.

My puzzle is how they never twig to names like Heywood Jablowme or Seymour Butz.

They understand proper English but do not understand a lot of slang. They have their own slang.

still amazes me though that you can have a guy that can string a letter together like this:

Quote:
DEAR IN THE LORD,

I RECIEVED YOUR MAIL AND WISH TO THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

SIR, I HAVE GONE THROUGH YOUR MAIL AND UNDERSTAND THE VITAL THINGS WE/I SHALL DO BEFORE TRANSFERING THIS FUND TO US.

I WILL BE VERY BUSY TOMORROW SUNDAY, AND I CAN NOT BE ABLE TO TAKE THE PICTURE AS YOU REQUESTED.

THEREFORE, COULD YOU PLEASE GIVE ME SOME FIEW DAYS TO COMPLETE THIS REQUIREMENT.

BESIDE, I STILL IN GREETINGS FOR YOUR OFFER TO ENABLE THIS CHURCH GROW MORE UNDER YOUR CHURCH CO-OPRATION.

THE AGREEMENT LETTER COULD NOT DOWNLOAD/SHOW IN OUR SYSTEM, SO COULD YOU PLEASE SEND IT THROUGH OUR FAX LINE; 234-1-759-2447 TO ENABLE ME TO SIGN IT AND SEND IT BACK TO YOU WITHOUT FORTHER DELAY.

NOTWITHSTANDING, COULD YOU PLEASE SEND ME YOUR PERSONAL PHONE AND FAX LINE FOR EASY COMMUNICATION AND I WILL LIKE TO CALL YOU SO WE CAN DISCUSS BETTER ABOUT THIS.

YOU CAN PERSONAL REACH ME WITH MY CELL PHONE NUMBER ANY TIME. 234-80-335-775-97.

REGARDS TO YOUR FAMILY.

EVANG SAMUEL EZE.


but then not be able to read this:

It just seems as if his English is good enough to read that sign.

^^^ It's not like you just ask/tell them to do that on the 1st date.

Over time their minds have to be mangled, bent, and shaped into believing that posing for this picture is the last thing standing between them and your money.

Or they photoshop it.

he most probably didnt write the letter. It would be a script which he was given and uses. once you get them off topic you can see a steep decline in their English capabilities (for most cases)

There's a prounounciation thing too. I read Seymour Butz, and I immediately read it as 'See more butts'.

But a West African may read it as 'Say mo-er butes', and not find any problem with that name.

Sign trophies are usually the result of lots of good grooming by a baiter, and typically feature some backstory to make the sign contents seem appropriate. With another baiter here, I once contrived a sign trophy which made total sense if you read it from the lads context, but from ours it more or less said he gave hand-jobs for cash, or similar. Can't remember exactly what it was, but you'll find that's typical.

As Branwen said, they often do not pronounce it in the way that we would, thus they do not see any problem with it. They also do not necessarily understand the slang, as someone else mentioned.

But what needs to be mentioned is that lads are very lazy and even getting them to hold up a sign with their name will take a lot of effort. That is why getting trophies and really anything from the lad takes time, patience and effort.

As an example of what manbiteslion said, I recently had a lad send me a photo of him holding a sign that said "Please Cornhole Me" (Google "cornhole" but NOT at work!). I'm sure if my lad knew the true meaning of the word, he would never had done the photo. However, he was applying to be a member of my church (Chilr3n of the C0rn Apostolic Church) and receive a grant for his sick father. I explained to him that such requests had to be reviewed by the Grants Committee, that we referred to this process as "cornholing" and that it was a made-up word combining "Corn" (from the church title) and "hole" from the phrase "pigeon hole" (to categorize something). The lad accepted this explanation without question and I got a nice trophy photo which, by the way, is posted over in the Photos & Video forum.

The other thing to consider is that most lads aren't truly bilingual- they probably don't speak English naturally and instead try and translate it into their native language before they work out its meaning. If they don't recognise a word, even one that sounds similar to another, chances are they'll simply ignore it.

fairydust, you can always write it into any script you choose.

I recently, or at least my character did, had a tiff with my romantic interest about him teaching his kids his native language instead of English. I mean what will serve them better in the future? Doesn't he have their best interests at heart. I had lots of good slapping material without actually attacking him personally. Look for opportunities.
