Just because you can eat glass doesn't mean the natives won't sink an axe in your head.

That is really funny AND your icon is great!

Did you do it yourself or is that from a Fark Photoshop contest?

When I took Russian, one of my classmates found the most useless phrase book of all time. I remember one drawing had a man standing in front of a painting, thoughtfully stroking his chin.

And the phrase was....

"He does his best work in oils."

Oh yeah, just what you want: to sound utterly pretentious in a foreign language.
