Edelmira de Mier - Cambridge
A NEW STUDY funded by the National Academy of Sciences has found that the strong pronunciation of the English language shown by French men and women is far from spontaneous. In fact, says Dr. Abraham Dolemorra, from the Department of Behavioral Disorders at Harvard School of Medicine, “these jerks do it by choice”.
Dolemorra acknowledged that while it is justified to show phonetic traces of one’s mother tongue when speaking a foreign language, “there is not a physiological explanation as of why the French talk in English as if they were gagging on a chicken liver”.
National pride seems to be at center of this flatulent behaviour which, according to the study, cannot be effectively slapped out of them.

Lo Garrofer - Honrubia
A TOWN IN THE Spanish province of Cuenca, some one-hundred miles from Madrid, is significantly larger than Texas. The updated geographical data for this unassuming village does not come as a surprise to the locals of Honrubia, as the surprisingly endless town is called. "We always knew it was rather large", says Jacinto Bodonal Cuervo, who runs a motel on the CM-3112, a secondary road that bisects the town across a mile and a half infinitude of weathered black top flanked by hangars of hog oilers, drag harrows and other obsolete farming equipment. Soledad Nieva, mayor of this massive village known for its honey and royal jelly, is equally unshaken by the new data; in fact, her own house abuts a lot with some fig trees and hives which rivals in size with the Gulf of Mexico.
