Today we had a group where the oldies had to identify different flags around the world and then search for it on the world map.
This lead to some interesting conversations:
OT: Which country's flag is this?
Mrs J: "Well... (thinking very hard), if there is black in the flag, then it is always an African country"
OT: "It's Palestine's flag"
Mrs J: "Well, I'll be damned. And with such a big stripe of black"
OT: (after showing the Russian flag) "What language do most people in Russia speak?"
Mr B: "Italian"
OT: (showing China's flag): "Which country's flag is this?"
Mr J: "China!"
OT: "Well done Mr J! Can you tell us anything else about China?"
Mr J: "They populate like fleas"
OT: "What is the capital city of Denmark?"
Mr S: "You should ask Hitler?"
OT: "Why, did he come from Denmark?"
Mr S: "No, but he knows everything..."
Then to add to the previous conversation:
Mrs N: "Yes Hitler, I knew him well. After he did so many horrible things, I decided to act up against him. I went to all the countries around the world and taught the people how to hug, so that they can learn to love rather than to hate. I wouldn't say I changed the world, but if you think about it...there's never been a World War III."
OT: Speechless as usual
