Unintentional laughs.

Techno and I had a great laugh last night over something which was unintentionally funny.

At the church that Techno attends they showed a motivational film which was produced in the USA.

Obviously different cultures come into play here because an action by one person in the film had a completely different reaction here.

He raises two fingers to his eyes to make a point but here in the UK it is taken as a two figure salute!

It is a rude sign given to someone when you are really annoyed with them.

I assume in the USA it doesn't have the same meaning.

Anyrate it gave us a great laugh which of course wasn't the point.

It just goes to show how careful you have to be when promoting something in another land.

Joke for today:- The marriage got off to a bad start. At the wedding ceremony when the vicar said "You may now kiss the bride" she replied "Not now I have a headache."

On this day:- 27th January

In 1967 three American astronauts died when a fire broke out in their command module during a flight simulation.

In 1943 the US Air Force bombed Germany for the first time.
