Love it!

Reminds me of a programmer I used to work with.
He could quickly check whether two files were identical,
but instead of producing some boring checksum for each,
he converted them into a random sentence.

I do miss the camraderie of working with a small group of
similar-minded folk, but mersenneforum is a good substitute!

I was sitting at a train station in germany a while ago, occasionally overhearing a group of high-school aged kids talking. At that point in the trip I was used to not understanding anything that was said around me, so it was unusual in that I noticed something familar about the german they were speaking.

Right around the time that I started feeling proud of myself for finally understanding some german, I realized that they were speaking english! Just a hopelessly mangled and accented version of it. I, on the other hand, spoke American, and so what they were saying made as much sense to me as the web site I linked to .

Not surprising for a challenge set by someone who has just
completed a Listener crossword.

A frivolous attempt at "three plates <> 1 pipe":

3 feet=1 yard mais ceci n'est pas une pipe
Or perhaps it is?

Do you remember the "hints" in that silly game show "3-2-1"?

Which way round would this have been used:

Ask the butcher for a "pipe" or
"I don't swear, don't smoke and don't drink"....
"Oh ****, I've just left my yard in the pub"?

An earlier attempt was:
3 feet = 1 yard = stride(s) = drainpipe(s)
