History, when retold by a person with less than proficient English, can be quite hilarious as I discovered whilst on my recent trip to India.
We were on a bus crawling towards Agra from Delhi (crawling because the speed limit for large vehicles on the highway was 40 km/hour!) and the tour guide decided to tell us bits of history regarding Mahatma Gandhi, India’s patriarch and founding father.
Here were some of the hilarious bits I heard:
“Mahatma Gandhi first started his fight for the discriminated people in South Africa. He f**ked the British there and then later came to India to f**k the British again.” (The tour guide pronounced “fought” as “f**k” !!) LOL!
But for commentaries like these, the long dreary bus rides in India would have been quite intolerable.
