(I’m in my first year of high school Spanish. We are doing some review before our test and my teacher is calling on people to name the objects on the screen in Spanish.)

Teacher: [Student’s Name], can you tell me what these are?

(He switches the slide to a picture of a girl with an arrow pointing to her eyes.)

Student: Ummm… ajos?

(My teacher starts laughing in the back. Everyone turns around in confusion, and the student who answered is red with embarrassment.)

Teacher: Oh, I’m sorry, you were close, I think you meant “ojos.” I was laughing because “ajo” actually means “garlic” in Spanish, so you said her eyes were garlic.
