Lecturer : "You! Ess, you! Stand up I say!"

Back-bencher, with exaggerated nonchalance : "Yenn sarr? (What sir?)"

Lecturer : "Oho. So confident aa? Ok then, you better tell me what this next word means, otherwise I'm suspending you for a week. Translate "Madirapaan". Fawstly!"

Back-bencher, thinking furiously to himself : "Ayyo, what is this big word now? Let's see, let's see, something to do with paan? No no. Hey wait, madeira is some firang wine! So it must mean something to do with drinking wonly. Worth a shot!"

Back-bencher turns to Lecturer : "Sarr, drinking sarr"


*Lecturer's mouth falls wide open in disbelief, as back-bencher's chaddi-buddies set up a loud cheer*
