I have a friend who told me this story and.........well had me in stitches of laughter!
She was part of a missionary team visiting Vietnam and whilst sitting around the dinner table 2 fat dogs walked in. Being a lover of animals she "oo'ed and aa'ed" patting them and showering them with affection.
All of a sudden her host turned around and mumbled something in Vietnamese and when interpreted meant the following:
"Tell her to stop playing with the food!"
