An elderly classical languages professor goes to Rome for a conference.

He hails a taxi as he leaves the airport, and in a thick accent the driver points to a sign saying “Tell driver your destination”. The professor hesitates for a moment. He doesn’t speak Italian, but doesn’t want the driver to misunderstand his directions in English. Suddenly realizing that Italian is descended from Latin he says, “Adducere me ad Marriott deversorium”

The cab driver nods and puts the car in gear. As he into traffic he says, “Wow, you sure haven’t been to Rome for a long time.”
