He is cock!

Ms. B is an English teacher for a high school.

One day she asked her students to write a descriptive text. She said that in a descriptive text one should write about a thing, a person or a place as detail as possible so that the reader feel and see thing described exactly the same as the writer.

Her students tried to describe a subject as clear as they could. The time for writing has run out. The students collected their papers.

At home Ms B examined every papers and her eyes walked from one words to other words. She tried to understand what her students wanted to describe.

She stucked at one paragraph. It went like this. “You know, my friend is cock! He is cock! play guitar!

As she couldn’t understand what it meant, she asked the writer of that paragraph. Then the students explain, “Miss… what I meant that HE IS AN EXPERT”

In Indonesian Cock means Jago. He translated Dia itu jago main gitar into HE IS COCK! PLAY GUITAR
