I learn American

So im wasting time at work today reading this website when I come across this cartoon.



So i ask Gabby what a ‘bong’ is and apparently it's not a Bengali. I was informed that it is in fact a pot smoking device; kind of like a hookah but not really.

Then Corey very kindly drew me a little diagram so that i could understand better.


I also learnt that it’s not okay to wish people “Happy Independence day” for tomorrow. They look at you kind of strange. The correct greeting is “Happy fourth”.

@Bikerdoddanna: you're welcome. so i take it u didn’t know what it meant either. and it was ONE piece of paper. what is that? like one quarter of a tree branch?

@the bride: i had. i just thought it meant you know people from the land of Saurav Ganguly.

@Irbitch: Heeeee that’s your favourite thing to say at all times isn’t it?

@Once again: wahaaat? im just a good Indian girl ... and its not my fault no one lets me smoke any of the good stuff. they think i would waste it cause apparently i cant even smoke a cigarette. i have done lots of second hand smoking though. does that count?

And yes diagramatic is an actual word. Jeez how long has it been since you graduated high school?

@ pri and once again - Diagrammatic is the correct spelling so does that mean both of u need to go back to high school??

I think the name 'Once Again' is self explanatory. Schooling required.

Hehe... every self respecting guy knows what a bong is! And of course... i don't mean the bongla people.
