    TENJOOBERRYMUDS

    "TENJOOBERRYMUDS"...

    This is a hoot.... sad, because it is TRUE..... but a hoot!!!!
    By the time you read through this YOU WILL UNDERSTAND "TENJOOBERRYMUDS"...

    In order to continue getting by in America 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...

    The following is a telephone exchange between maybe you as a hotel guest and a call to room service somewhere in the good old USA today......

    Room Service: "Morrin. Roon sirbees."

    Guest: "Sorry, I thought I dialed room-service."

    Room Service: " Rye. Dis Roon sirbees...morrin! Joowish to oddor sunteen???"

    Guest: "Uh..... Yes, I'd like to order bacon and eggs."

    Room Service: "Ow July den?"

    Guest: "......What??"

    Room Service: "Ow July den?!?... pryed, boyud, poochd?"

    Guest: "Oh, the eggs! How do I like them? Sorry.. scrambled, please."

    Room Service: "Ow July dee baykem? Crease?"

    Guest: "Crisp will be fine ."

    Room Service: "Hokay. An Sahn toes?"

    Guest: "What?"

    Room Service: "An toes. July Sahn toes?"

    Guest: "I... don't think so."

    RoomService: "No? Judo wan sahn toes???"

    Guest: "I feel really bad about this, but I don't know what 'judo wan sahn toes' means."

    RoomService: "Toes! Toes!...Why Joo don Juan toes? Ow bow Anglish moppin weet bodder?"

    Guest: "Oh, English muffin!!! I've got it! You were saying 'toast'...Fine ...Yes, an English muffin will be fine ."

    RoomService: "Weet bodder?"

    Guest: "No, just put the bodder on the side."

    RoomService: "Wad?!?"

    Guest: "I mean butter... just put the butter on the side."

    RoomService: "Copy?"

    Guest: "Excuse me?"

    RoomService: "Copy...tea..meel?"

    Guest: "Yes. Coffee, please... and that's everything.."

    RoomService: "One Minnie. Scramah egg, crease baykem, Anglish moppin, weet bodder on sigh and copy ... rye??"

    Guest: "Whatever you say."

    RoomService: "Tenjooberrymuds."

    Guest: "You're welcome"

    Remember I said "By the time you read through this YOU WILL UNDERSTAND 'TENJOOBERRYMUDS' "......and you do, don't you!

    Ned,

    I came across this in a motel in Lancaster County about 20 years ago and this line has always stayed with me. Thanks for posting this and refreshing my memory on the rest of it.

    Ned,
    That's a classic! It took me ten minutes just to read it - let alone trying to catch it in real time.

    Rennie,
    If you came across any of the "Dutchy" (as they say ) guys here I suspect the conversation goes about the same.

    Our neighbors Dad is "real Dutchy" and when we were over at a cook-out, he asked my son a number of times for "dabooddah". Once he clarified "Foo da kon." The light bulb went on and he passed the butter for Mr. Lapp's corn. Now whenever we have corn on the cob, we pass daboodah.

    I have absolutely zero idea what this is about, I speak two languages, and this is neither of them.

    Stu, read it out loud slowly. Really weird how it all of a sudden starts to make sense! Kind of like a customer in your shop that has spent the day "sampling" your wares.

    Well if you all are making fun of people who do not speak English the exact same way that you do, I'll opt our of that game as I have a very funny accent, especially in Japanese

    I did do some looking and found the original.........

    http://shelleyberman.com/roomservice.htm

    The original humor writer, Shelley Berman put this disclaimer at the end......

    The above dialogue never actually took place in any hotel anywhere in the world. It is an intentionally composed humorous fiction and is entirely the creation of Shelley Berman, written as a chapter in his book, published as A HOTEL IS A PLACE, A HOTEL IS A FUNNY PLACE, and A HOTEL IS A VERY FUNNY PLACE, by Price/Stern/Sloan Publishers, Inc. Copyright © 1972, 1985. Any claim to the contrary is utterly baseless and erroneous.

    Apologies where nescessary, I did not mean any offense.

    that's almost always the problem with humor. Someone is the victim in the joke. There are days when I'm the one who isn't all that clear verbally.

    And thanks for finding the original Stu.
