Speak Spanish like a Native

These jokes play on the fact that before a Spaniard has fully got to grips with English pronunciation, their attempts to say the English phrases (on the left) will often end up sounding like the Spanish phrases (on the right). Try saying the English phrases yourself in a Spanish accent and ask a friend what you sound like.

Try door → Traidor

Wanted → Guante

Ford knee car → Fornicar

Hast tall we go → Hasta luego

Car tool in a → Cartulina

One car lose → Juan Carlos

As eight toon as → Aceitunas

Tell a boy a much a car → Te la voy a machacar

Who and see to sick ago in lost paint alone is → Juancito se cagó en los pantalones

Hey picture → Hey picha

A brief post, but hopefully a fun one ;)
