This is silly. To pleasure someone has a sexual meaning, to please someone just means to make them happy (like by giving them a present or something). There's no connotation of sexuality involved, though I'm sure there are cases where you could say it and it would have sexual implications. Tom, your post was needlessly complex and didn't address the main problem with Mezzo's claim. You fail.

I'm not sure this is in order here, as PL/I may not qualify as a 'real language', but I can't resist adding this one:

IF IF = THEN THEN THEN = ELSE ELSE ELSE = IF;

PL/I has no reserved words, so IF, THEN, and ELSE can be identifiers. Also, PL/I uses '=' for both assignment and equality. Thus, rewriting this with keywords in lower case, we would have:

if IF = THEN then THEN = ELSE else ELSE = IF;

when ever this conversation comes up, i always have to bring out the Mandarin Chinese tongue-twister.

Chī pútao bù tǔ pútao pí, bù chī pútao dáo tǔ pútao pí

When eating grapes don't spit out the skin, when not eating grapes spit out the skin

A couple of tongue-twisters from polish language:

dziewięćsetdziewięćdziesięciodziewięciotysięcznik - nine-hundred-ninety-nine-thousand (peak, for example)

ma mama ma mamałygę - my mother has mamalyga (a type of dish)

pocztmistrz z Tczewa, rotmistrz z Czchowa - mailman from Tczew, rotamaster from Czchow.

przygwoździ Bździągwa gwoździem źdźbło, to pobździ źdźbłko - when a farter will have nailed down a straw with a nail, he will fart a bit. :)

I've always thought the Swahili phrase 'sili kuku' ( same in X-sampa) was weird. It translates to: I don't eat chicken.
