David Sedaris wrote a hilarious book in the year 2000. Me Talk Pretty One Day describes the American writer's transition to life in France. In French class one day Sedaris got into an awkward discussion of the Easter Bunny and the treats he brings on Easter morning, a concept that was foreign to his non-American classmates.

"Here in France the chocolate is brought by a big bell that flies in from Rome," his teacher explained.

"But how do the bell know where you live," Sedaris replied in his broken French.

He read the story on an episode of This American Life.
