My friend Jack, visiting Australia. Finished a meal, pushed
away and announced "I'm full!". The Aussies started
laughing. Finally he figured out that "I'm full" was slang
for "I'm pregnant".

Long long ago, far, far away... my English girl friend never
could get used to Americans saying they were "stuffed"
following
a large meal or, for that matter, the expression "Stuffed
Shirt".

Or the time I met a pretty girl in Holy Loch Scotland.  She told me I
should "Come 'round tomorrow and knock me up."  Being 'knocked up' over
there has an entirely different meaning than in the States :-)

   You did better than me!  To me, those Holy Loch girls may as well have
been speaking Swahili.  Couldn't understand a word they were saying.
Strangely, I quickly figured out that it was only a one-way problem; they
could understand me just fine.  I guess it was the USA'n TV shows and movies
that they were always watching.

Boy! This thread is really drifting around.
