Lost in Translation

I might have to go to class this week.

I went to Assembly Programming last Thursday, and I clearly remember the instructor saying in his thick Indian accent "We will have Test B on next Tuesday."

Of course my first thoughts were "Test B? Does that mean I missed Test A? Oh shit..."

Then I thought about it some more... and realized that "We will have Test B on Tuesday" actually means "We will have test be on Tuesday"

He also said that the test was going to be on the same day the homework was due, which isn't until next Tuesday 10-9.

All of which means that I have to attend all classes in the event the test is on Tuesday like he said it was or on next Tuesday like the time he said it would be on the same day as the homework.

I'm confused, but "Test be on Tuesday yo."

    (Brian and Stewie are on a German tour bus.)
    German Tour Guide: You vill find more on Germany´s contributions to ze arts in ze pamphlets ve have provided.
    Brian : Yeah, about your pamphlet... uh, I´m not seeing anything about German history between 1939 and 1945. There´s just a big gap.
    Tour guide: Everyone vas on vacation. On your left is Munich´s first city hall, erected in 15...
    Brian : Wait, what are you talking about? Germany invaded Poland in 1939 and...
    Tour Guide: We were invited. Punch vas served. Check vit Poland.
    Brian : You can´t just ignore those years. Thomas Mann fled to America because of Nazism´s stranglehold on Germany.
    Tour guide: Nope, nope. He left to manage a Dairy Queen.
    Brian : A Dairy Queen? That´s preposterous.
    Tour guide: I vill hear no more insinuations about the German people. Nothing bad happened. Sie werden sich hinsetzen. Sie werden ruhig sein. Sie werden nicht beleidigen Deutschland. You will sit down. You will shut up. You will not insult Germany. (Throws his hand up in a Hitler salute.)
    Brian : Uh, is that a beer hall?
    Tour guide: (Snapping out of it) Oh yes, Munich is renowned for its historic beer halls.
