You know, I have had trouble with my samek's and my mem's before (I am speaking of the tattoo now). Back when I was in seminary I was a Yankee fan and I bought a hat that phonetically in Hebrew said 'Yankees'. Although the samek at the end of it kind of looked like a mem so my Yankee hating Hebrew prof laughed hysterically because translated that way 'YaNaKiM' means literally 'those who suck'.
My friend reminded me of these really great ads from Budweiser. I remember hearing one of them on the radio and having to pull over I was laughing so hard. My favorite one in this series (there are 3) is the last one, because there is nothing I enjoy more than eating a huge meat salad and responding proudly when anyone asks what I had for a lunch, "Why a salad, of course."
