An American of Eastern European extraction, married a Canadian girl and
although his English was far from perfect, they got on very well. That

EEA: "It made of concrete, brick and mortar," he responded.
L: "Does either of you have a real grudge?"
EEA: "No," he replied, "We have carport. Don't need grudge.
L: "OK, what are your relations like?"
EEA: "All my relations in Eastern Europe."
L: "Is there any infidelity in your marriage?"
EEA: "Yes, we have hi fidelity stereo set & DVD player with 6.1
