It contained the following gem:

This reminds me of a story one of my history teachers told me back in the day. Apparently someone in Portugal once published a helpful book for people wanting to travel and do business in the UK. It was called "English as She Is Spoke."
Reminds me of the 'Dirty Hungarian Phrase Book'.
