Conversational Brazilian

This must be some record! Because they speak Portuguese in Brazil....not Brazilian. There's no such language as Brazilian.

So I really would like to hear how Cortina is planning to teach us how to speak it. And will they teach me other imaginary languages, if I send them enough money?

From Popular Science, March 1951.

They call it Brazilian, but its probably Pig-Latin.

They probably couldn't spell "Portuguese". But I'm thinking VetTech might be on to something about the Pig Latin...

Perhaps a more accurate term should be "Brazilian Portugese" (as opposed to European Portugese).

:) I wonder if each record track has a different language on it?

I don't know why, but this reminds me of a joke.

One Lady: I'm dating a Brazilian.

Another Less Smart Lady: That sounds like a lot, you certainly get around!

I thought this was going to be about good topics to discuss with the person giving one a brazillian waxing.

I don't think the record will help that.
