The Mitchieville Berlitz Language and Dog Obedience School (MBL&DOS) is proud to bring to you another segment of Language Lessons.

It has been a few years since we last had a language lesson, and it’s not because The Mayor isn’t interested in teaching his fellow Mitchievillians valuable foreign words and phrases that could one day save your life, it’s because The Mayor isn’t interested in teaching his fellow Mitchievillians valuable foreign words and phrases that could one day save your life. Well what do you know about that, that’s exactly the reason The Mayor hasn’t taught you any lessons in a few years. Knock The Mayor over with a feather and call him Shirley.

Today The Mayor brings you a phrase that he has used several times throughout his travels, a phrase that will most certainly come in handy to you, or/or your traveling companions.

“Excuse me, doctor, would you happen to have a cream or an ointment that will take away this horrible groin itch I have suddenly developed?”

French – “Excusez-moi, docteur, souhaitez-vous arriver à avoir une crème ou un onguent qui emportera ce démangeaisons de l’aine horrible que j’ai soudainement développé ?”

Greek – “Συγχωρείστε με, Γιατρέ, θα σας συμβεί να έχουν μια κρέμα ή ένα μελανό σημείο ότι θα πάρουν αυτό itch φρικτή groin ανέπτυξα ξαφνικά;”

Russian – “Извините меня, доктор, бы вы случаетесь иметь крем или мазь, которая заберет этот зуд ужасный пах, внезапно разработанным?”

Italian – “Mi scusi, dottore, ti capita di avere una crema o un unguento che vi toglierà questo prurito inguine orribile che ho sviluppato improvvisamente?”

German – “Entschuldigen Sie mich, Herr Doktor, Sie haben eine Creme oder eine Salbe, die diese schreckliche Leiste Juckreiz rauben wird, das ich, plötzlich entwickelt habe passieren würde?”

Now, The Mayor isn’t 100% that the Russian translation is correct; if uttering that phrase, the doctor may very well bring you a banana smoothie. Either way, it’ll be some needed temporary relief.
