    Tenjooberrymuds
    By the time you read through this YOU WILL UNDERSTAND TENJOOBERRYMUDS"...

    In order to continue getting-by in America (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...

    The following is a telephone exchange between maybe you as a hotel guest and call room-service somewhere in the good old U S A today......

    Room Service : "Morrin Roon sirbees."

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

    Room Service: " Rye. 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 we bodder?"

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

    RoomService: "We 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, we 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

    I've already been accused of not having a sense of humor lately so I'll just move on.

    Been away, now I'm back. Not as much, but I'm back & starting from scratch. Where I was, was fantastic. Where I am now, less so. Things have changed, become harder. So have I. Game ON!!!

    Just saw a story on History Channel re fast food operations, where they showed, I think Wendys, in a few states, where the drive-through system goes to a central call center in one state, and the person there enters it in a computer that sends the order back to the restaurant. When asked, the Chief of Operations said there were no plans to move their call center to India.

    After rereading that, I think it's Jamaican-English.

    If it was regular Ebonics I would have spotted it right away! Not too many Jamaicans around my area though...hence my initially mistaking it for Ind-grish...
