Slobodan, have you passed this event on to your wife?

I was tempted, but we've been separated and divorcing, which makes the whole auto-correct thing even more eerie :)

Sorry my friend. I thought I was being funny but I can see I wasn't. Please forgive me.

I took my wife to a restaurant.
The waiter, for some reason, took my order first.
"I'll have the rump steak, rare, please."
He said, "Aren't you worried about the mad cow?"
"Nah, she can order for herself."

And that's when the fight started...

Why does a Chicken Coop only have 2 doors?
Because if it had 4 doors it would be a Chicken "Sedan!"

(Guess you have to be in the Automotive business)

And you have to pronounce "coupé" the American way, too.

That's right. 1 syllable in America.  :)

My uncle fought in WWII France. He told a story of passing through French towns during the liberation. When the French shouted greetings to the American soldiers they would answer, "Chev-roo-lay Coo-pay."

After my recent prostate exam, which was one of the most thorough examinations I've ever had, the doctor left and the nurse came in.

As she shut the door, she asked me a question.
                         
She said...."Who was that guy?"

They probably thought they were asking for some goat meat...

And to think that had they been given some, fast food might never have been invented!

Reminded me of one anecdote from Soviet times... Hope there are enough people over here to understand the context :)

Brezhnev visits some south-eastern Soviet republic and is greeted by the huge crowd.

Somebody from the crowd: "Salamu alaykum!"
Brezhnev: "Alaykum salamu..."
Somebody else from the crowd: "GULAG Archipelago!"
Brezhnev: "Archipelago gulag..."

Sold the watch then.

 ;)

Even funnier: the repair, when it's done, will cost me almost exactly ten times what I paid for the entire thing back in '72. And a replacement bracelet, had I rashly decided to do without the one adapted by time, and that now swings round and round my wrist as if with a life of its own, would have set me back € 1200 just for that ultimate in giggles! Think of the talking point I'd have sacrificed to be seen with a bracelet just like all the others!
