Expressive power of English (Tony Schaeffer)
(heard it, smirk)

A colleague in my department tells this story.  He emigrated from
Russia to Israel, and then from Israel to the USA.  Besides being a
mathematician, he has had to be a linguist.

An American couple was visiting an Eastern European country.  While
they were waiting at the border, they were talking to three soldiers
who knew some English.  The soldiers were trying to explain why one
of the historical royal lines had died out.

The first soldier explains.  "The queen, she was unbearable."

The second soldier interrupts.  "No, no.  Please excuse.  My friend
does not speak English good.  The queen, she was inconceivable."

The third soldier cannot contain himself and has to say "No, no, NO!
Please excuse my friends.  Their English is not very well.  They mean
the queen, she was impregnable."
