[quote,language] QotD

Just quickly peered at my friends' page and immediately had my day made. Thanks, vladk!!!

В аэропорту Сан-Франциско сосед по очереди, китаец лет 45, услышав, как я говорю по телефону с коллегой, спрашивает (по-русски): "Вы говорите по-русски?" Да, говорю, а вы, наверное, в школе учили?

Он задумывается на секунду и очень чисто (правда, с паузами), произносит: "Иностранный… язык… — оружие… жизненной… борьбы."
