I heard a silly joke the other day about a group of politicians from one of the countries in Africa who were staying at a hotel in the U.S., they didn't know that their phone had been "grampeado" and the leader of the group called the reception desk and said really fast:

tú-tí-tu-tú, rúm tú - tú - tú

 

Oh, my! that caused a huge comotion in the neighborhood around the hotel, translators of "exotic" languages were called to the scene, and etc.

 

Then finally someone was able to translate in American English.

 

What do you think the guy had said when he called the reception desk?
