anecdote #104 -Somali students

doing minimal difference
word pair pronunciations
will - wheel
dill - deal
fill- feel

all fine choral time until
sill- seal

And the room goes silent.

the ladies mummed.
in a blushing aside
one confided: seal
is Somali for lady's bits.

So I guess if I love baby seals that'd make me a Somali, pedophile pervert. Well don't worry ladies--I absolutely don't love baby seals!
