Skinny People

I asked, "Cuantos delgados eran en la capilla?" The Hondurans tried to politely keep a straight face, but then everyone burst out laughing because instead of saying, "How many delegates (delegados) were in the chapel," I'd asked, "How many skinny people (delgados) were in the chapel?"

"Lots and lots," they said, grinning. Then, "Well, no, actually, three."
