Blasphemous Career

Sister Y: So, Brother W, what do you do at your job?

Brother W: I work at a solar company...

Sister Y: So you make solar panels?

Brother W: Yeah, we do that, but also work on the entire system from batteries to wiring and things... So we set up the entire solar system.

Sister Y: (quite serious) What? Only God makes solar systems!!

NOTE: Sister Y claimed later that she was just joking, and that she was just making fun of Brother W's awkward expression "solar system".  It only goes to show you the prejudice against English Patients, who can't even say clever word puns without being misunderstood.  I believe Sister Y.

Sister K: Oh my gosh, it's so cold.  I have chickenpox all over my skin.

English Patients Playing Taboo

The word was "Alibi", and the clue that was given:  "This is what you sing to babies to make them fall asleep!"

The word was "Blush" and the clue was: "This is what you use to clean your teeth!"

The word was "Scientist", and an English Patient brother, who is a science-major said: "This word describes me!" and his teammates shouted, "FOB!"
