Once there was a foreign guy and he needed to learn how to speak English. So he asked his English speaking wife to learn. She said, “Go to the airport, go to the zoo, and go to the hospital.” He went to the airport and everyone was saying “Take off, take off, take off”, and so he learned to say, “Take off”. Then he went to the zoo, and everyone was saying, “Zebra, zebra, zebra,” and so he learned to say zebra. Then he went to the hospital and everyone was saying, “Baby, baby, baby,” and so he learned how to say baby. He went back to his wife. She asked, “What did you learn today?” The man answered, “TAKE OFF ZE-BRA BABY!”
- In some versions, the man’s English speaking wife is replaced by a female worker at some sort of English-teaching agency.
- There is an alternate ending in which the woman hits the man in the head.
