Travelling in Canada ? Maybe you need to understand Tenjooberrymuds!

I was recently in Vancouver and decided to learn the Chinese language, so I could understand the check-outs at McDonalds.  My next move is to learn Indian, so I can understand my doctors and the person who answers the phone when I have a warranty problem.  Yep, by the time you read this, you too will be able to understand the 1st line.

“TENJOOBERRYMUDS”… (first line)

In order to continue getting-by in Canada (our home land), we all need to learn the NEW English language! Practice by reading the following conversation until you are able to understand the term “TENJOOBERRYMUDS”.  With a little patience, you ‘ll be able to fit right in.

Now, here goes…
