disclaimer: In no means is this list intended to discourage people explaining games in English (as you can see my own English isn't that good).


Most of us know the misheard lyrics (like http://www.kissthisguy.com/)
my fav. misheard lyric is:



Maybe is was the lack of sleep, or maybe it's my own lack of a sense of humour but, during Essen 2011 I misheard some game explanations. I wonder if it's me or does this happen more often?

Type of accent: French (like allo allo)
What he said: We have survived the jungle, but we can not stay on the beach.
What I heard: We have survived the jungle, but we can't stay on the bitch.

Nope, you definitely cannot stay there, things may get ugly fast.....
Didn't like the game at all, just like Rock paper scissors with different hand gestures, mwah...

What he said: When you get back with your fish, you put it in the warehouse
What I heard: When you get back with your fish, you put it in your whorehouse.

Never been there, probably never will be, but putting fish in a whorehouse seemed appropriate for a short while. But not with a nice family game looking like this. Didn't play this, but it looked stunning. The guy explaining was very good at explaining the basics and was enthusiastic.

Not game related but last night my oldest and I were in my parents hot tub talking about the stars. We see jupiter through the trees and talk briefly about it, then we faintly see andromeda and discuss it. Then my daughter innocently and honestly asks where my anus was... stifling my chortling we talk about how it is behind the trees and out of view and how it is faint.
