homework? Did you mean niet gestolen or net gestolen---maybe net is dialect?
Aww! You caught me!! (where did you learn dutch?) :redface:

"Excuse me, I have just eaten some Dutch licorice. What is the antidote?"
Hmm, lekkere dropjes zijn dat, mag ik er nog eentje?
Hmmm what delicious [licorice], may I have another?

"These highly spiced Dutch cookies are very tasty. Do you have a fire extinguisher handy?"
Bedankt voor het koekje, kun je mijn jonge jenever even aangeven?
Thanks for the cookie, [could you hand me my young gin]?

"Someone just ran me down on one of those yellow bikes. Where is the nearest emergency room?"
Mijn fiets is net gestolen, waar is het dichtsbijzijnde politie kantoor?
My bicycle has [just] been stolen, where is the nearest police station?

Never trust anyone who teaches you a foreign language :tongue: :wink:

ROFLMAO at Monique's sly ways!!!

And I thought the Dutch were trustworthy souls!!! Although any culture that invented that horrible licorice should have some sort of sanctions against it.

Saying on the island I used to live on: "If you ain't Dutch, you ain't much."

Concerning Martyrdom, er, I mean Mentordom (in my case it would have been Mentordumb): Why ain't ol' macus a mentor? I suspect it is because he is the very brightest of all on God's green earth. Sometimes, when I see his remarks, I just go outside and lay in the dirt, like a little worm.

Thank you.

Hey Monique,

If you're getting a Dutch lessons, how about translating the following phrase for me?

"I swim in the ham and cheese".

Thanks a bunch.
