As an English speaker, I wonder if the collective jetblast mind could identify the foreign language equivalent of "thankyou."

Please no suggestions which would result in my tongue being torn out - as a predominantly English speaking forum I am just intrigued to know how many we can come up with without resorting to google.

Ok 1. Merci
2. Gracias

Can't remember the language (doh!) but in Kenya I remember it was (phonetically) - Asanta Sana
(same language as that one where 'Hakuna Matata' is always accompanied with a big cheesy grin)

I find that a blow job is a nice way of expressing gratitude.

Bit dry, this thread. I had hoped the introduction of blow jobs would liven things up. (BTW, any Prune experts know why "blow" jobs?. Suck, lick, gag or splutter would be much more realistic. Or do I not meet the right kind of ladies?)

I always thought a blow job was a greeting in Essex?! At least that's what I've heard.
