The International Language

Last evening I received what is, by my count, the last of the homing pigeons I supplied to Flash Mildew when he departed on his world tour last November. Although the missive does not mention his current location, I judge by the condition of the bird that he has returned to North America.

Instead of the usual unusual trick, which I would aggregate into the may-be-released-someday volume currently titled "202 Ways to Force an Audience to Walk Out on Your Act", the good Mr. Mildew has collected a list of phrases spoken to him on his tour that transcend language barriers to let the magi know exactly the level of wonder that his act has instilled within the audience. Some performers would take these as insults. Flash takes whatever he can get.
