A gentleman (?) and his wife are speeding down the highway when a policeman pulls them over.
— I'm sorry, sir, but I clocked you speeding at 75 mph. I'll have to give you a ticket.
— No way, officer, says the guy, I was watching my speedometer closely, and I never exceeded 55 mph.
— Oh, honey, says the wife, you were going 75, I saw the speedometer.
— Be quiet, woman, he responds.
— Also, continued the trooper, I'll have to give you a ticket for not wearing your seat belt.
— But officer, he responded, I ALWAYS wear my seat belt. I just took it off when you pulled me over so that I could get my license and insurance card from the glove compartment.
— Oh, honey, his wife continued, you never wear your seat belt, and you weren't wearing it today, either.
— Shut up! he yelled.
— Excuse me, ma'am, said the trooper, But does he always talk to you this way?
— No, sir -- only when he's drunk.
Esta lista veicula diariamente uma história, preferencialmente engraçada (afinal, quem não gosta de uma boa piada?), ou uma citação. As histórias estão em inglês, e as palavras mais incomuns são comentadas. Dessa forma os alunos aprendem, todos os dias, duas ou mais palavras novas. Todos os dias. Em um ano esse pequeno esforço diário pode vir a fazer uma grande diferença.
