Shut up, Brian. Shut up.

After the post on words meaning things I thought of this little gem of a conversation that took place between Brian and a brand new local friend.

Friend: Brain, where are you from?
Brian: California
Friend: Really, Brain? I love that song "Californication" by the Red Hot Chili Peppers
Brian: Oh, um...well that is different. California is a state in America. Fornication is...


Yep. He tried to explain fornication...in English and Turkish making this face and gesture. What he should have said...

Brian: Oh, um...I don't think I've ever heard that song.

The End.

OH my...THANK you for the laugh. I needed that this morning. HA!!! (but speaking of the misspelling...my sister was married to a "Brian" and on one of her shower cakes they had spelled it "Brain".)

derya - i listened to the 30 second clip they give you on itunes and it seemed ok. of course i chose to listen to the nonexplicit version so i'm not sure how the real one would sound!

kristy - i know...poor poor brian. and yes...most turks say brain which brian loves. it makes him feel smart. of course those who know him well know how to pronounce his name and are sure to never call him brain. they know better!

gina - i guess brain is more natural? glad you enjoyed the story.

The universal hand-gesture for "fornication". Also for "elephant".

over-thinker - i know. he uses that hand-gesture quite a bit...mostly talking about sex...rarely about elephants.
