I have a friend who is half South-African and half German. His German father, Detlef, is a chef. His grasp of the English language is pretty good, however with most foreign people, he gets confused with regards to homonyms. The pub where he works recently changed their menu and one of the new meals was "Battered Haddock." The first day using the new menu, the landlord was getting ready to open the doors when he heard an incredible racket emanating from the kitchen. He rushed in to see what was going on, only to see Detlef beating the shit out of a cold dead fish with a large rolling pin.
