Life's too serious


A Spaniard walks into a menswear shop in Sydney, and is approached by a young sales assistant who offers to help.

"Quiero calcetines," says the man.

"I’m sorry sir, I don't speak Spanish. But we have some very nice suits over here," says the sales assistant.

"No, no quiero trajes. Quiero calcetines," says the man.

"Well, these shirts are on sale this week," declares the sales assistant.

"No, no quiero camisas. Quiero calcetines."

"We have some fine pants on this rack."

"No, no quiero pantalones. Quiero calcetines!"

"Uh, these sweaters are top quality?"

"No, no quiero sueter. Quiero calcetines!"

The man finally spots a display of socks and grabs a pair. Holding them up he shouts, "Eso sí que es!"

"Well why didn't you just spell it in the first place?!"
