Female Translation Guide

Well, I'm not sure how this story fits today's joke, but here ya go.

Arava is a 10-year old turtle who recently moved into the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo. At 55 pounds, and with her hind legs paralyzed for some unknown reason, all the male turtles spurned any courtship overtures, as she was, apparently, "damaged goods" and could not move herself with just her front legs.

The zookeepers ingeniously fitted her with a custom made skateboard so that she can now move around and, pow! Instant love life.



She says: "We need..."
She means: "I want..."

She says: "Do what you want."
She means: "You'll pay for this later."

She means: "I need to complain."

She says: "No, I'm not upset."

She means: "You sweat a lot and need a shave."

She means: "Tell me I'm beautiful."
