Shana Tova!

So it’s Friday, 18 August, 2009, and I’m walking down Franklin Street, when this guy in a really big black hat comes up to me and says:

Guy In Black Hat: “Shana Tova!”

Dutchman: “Sorry, I don’t speak Spanish.”

Guy In Black Hat: “Why do you think that’s Spanish?”

Dutchman: “Because you’re wearing the sombrero!”

Now, I have consulted my wife and daughter. They both say it is more accurately....:L'shana tova"
Which is pronounced "La shana tova". Which explains the spanish interpritation. :0)
