LANGUAGE PROBLEM

A Russian woman married a Canadian gentleman and they lived happily ever after in Toronto. However, the poor lady was not very proficient in English, but did manage to communicate with her husband. The real problem arose whenever she had to shop for groceries.
One day, she went to the butcher and wanted to buy chicken legs. She didn't know how to put forward her request and, in desperation, clucked like a chicken and lifted up her skirt to show her legs. Her butcher got the message, and gave her the chicken legs.

Next day, she needed to get chicken breasts. Again, she didn't know how to say it, and so she clucked like a chicken and unbuttoned her blouse to show the butcher her breasts. The butcher understood again and gave her some chicken breasts.

On the third day, the poor lady needed to buy sausages. Unable to find a way to communicate this, she brought her husband to the store....

Everytime Walter posts, my computer flashes "NEEDS ATTENTION" He just wants to be one of us.

Don't all of you know, Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus? Different languages.
