Hilarious conversation at work

Postby dAnzac » Sun Feb 20, 2011 3:30 am

I work with this African man from Sudan, he's a lovely bloke and we are fast friends because we're both immigrants. English is his 3rd language and sometimes we have trouble communicating. This is an actual conversation we had today:

Him: Are you married?
Me: Yes
Him: I paid 700 cows for my wife
Me (mind totally blown by this, but quickly reply) Did you keep the receipt?

This actually happened :-b :-b :-b

"Hilarious" must have a different meaning in Australian.

1 dude, maybe 2, but 3 dudes would mean a very special guy, a physical freak.

Really?
How would you react if one of your work friends told you he paid for his wife in cows?
If you answer anything but shocked hilarity you are lying. :-?
