Humor , Military , Linguistics
As a military brat, the scenario depicted in the following image could easily have played itself out in our household when I was growing up.
Although I must admit, in the years since my exit from the Army (where I had been serving as a military linguist), I have found the ability to utter colorful vocabulary in foreign languages extremely beneficial during times of crisis... though I am careful to choose a language that is not likely to be understood by the people around me.
