My DD is constructing an essay for her German exam...

she's supposed to talk about likes and dislikes.

She pointed out that she does NOT like German (long story-- involving a teacher that has specifically instructed her to contact the teacher pretty much ONLY as a last resort, and feels that 15 minutes a week and no textbook is completely fine as "instruction" in a second year language course...)

and then added, after a sentence about playing the piano:

Ich mag das Thema aus Rocky, aber ich spiele Mozart mehr.

This is VERY funny if you're familiar with the song "I Speak Six Languages" from Spelling Bee.
