Of Shit and Tea

I don’t know why I’m remembering this now, but I had a conversation with a roommate in Chicago a couple of years ago about Starbucks’ Chai tea. I thought it was funny that Chai is just how you say “tea” in Russian (which is probably derived from Chinese). Therefore, when you say you want Chai tea, you are saying you want tea tea. My roommate then told me that a word that sounds a lot like “tea tea” is the word in hindi for shit.

Hooray!
