laughs best!"

best medicine."

Learner's Mistake Eight

Sometimes you feel like a nut...

Here's a funny English sign found in a bar somewhere in the world:
"Special cocktails: For the ladies with nuts."  
Explanation: There are many kinds of nuts that we can eat - peanuts, almonds, walnuts, cashews. However, a nut can also be a person - a crazy person! So, the sign tried to describe a cocktail (a special alcoholic drink) with some kind of nuts but actually described a lady with a crazy person, perhaps her husband! (^_^) [The sign should have been "Special cocktails with nuts for the ladies".]
