I was teaching my friend tamil. I asked her to say, "Naan oru loosu." (meaning, I'm a nut.)

She said, " I know that."

I'm not sure if it's the jokes that don't translate well, or the humor.

One time when I was in college, I brought my laundry home. My mom was helping me fold it, and pulled out a pair of women's lacy underwear. Embarrassed, I told her that they belonged to my girlfriend. Then regaining a measure of my composure, I added, "... so you don't have to worry about me!"

Well, that's easier to explain than the studded leather underwear. Oh, wait... Those are dry clean only.

And when you pick them up at the dry cleaner: "These don't belong to me. Mine are studded on the inside."

In a recent interview, i was asked to insert values to a hashmap, and i wrote:

hm.add("a");
hm.add("b");
hm.add("c");

she asked me " what about the keys for these values?"
I said : "this uses hash functions, thats what it does, it generates unique keys for these values automatically!"

ha ha! needless to ask, i didnt get the job .

I would have said, "They're secret."

Oh, I remember one! I used to help manage a student-run general store ... school supplies, sodas, hygeine, t-shirts, that sort of thing. My friend and I were going to work on some stuff during the weekend, and as we were unlocking the door, our coworker, Manny, burst out and, after some hemming and hawing, admitted that he was using the store office for a romantic tryst. So my friend and I went outside and sat on the grass to wait. After some time, Manny walked past us towards the parking lot and called to us that he would be right back. I called back, "Manny, you're a machine!" My friend just about died laughing.

It was one of those rare situations where I acutally thought of the perfect line (borrowed from the Simpsons though it was) right at the moment, rather than two days later. :roll:

I was visiting the US from Oz and making a day trip to the HP offices. There was a militant security guard we had to pass before getting in.

Him: What sort of accent do you have?
Me: I don't have an accent.

(True story but borrowed from Douglas Adams)
During a particularly bad shift while working in hospitality, I said nonchalantly to a co-worker:

Me: It's days like this that I wish I had listened to my mother.
Them: (taking the bait) Why, what did she say?
Me: I don't know, I wasn't listening.

I would have said "Only entity beans have keys"


In Japan, there's a dish called "Katsu-don" : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Katsudon
At lunch, I was with my coworkers and asked for a "Katsura-don". They all burst laughing, and the waitress looked at me with a smile. I didn't get it at the moment. They explained me that it was Katsu-don, not Katsura-don. "Katsura" actually means "hairpiece, wig", which is not very tasty on top of the rice

I was watching Thin Red Line movie with my friends this Saturday.

A: " Did you see that? Why do they have a knife at the end of the barrel?"
B: " When the bullets are over, that is to stab somebody and to fight."
C: " Why do you have to fight, if you had stabbed him."

Once, in college, we had to fill up a form and submit the same day as the notice came. The form required a photo and my friend didnt have one. You know what he said: "Raghav, can I borrow one from you?"
