“The sign was spray-painted in Arabic and English, probably from
some attempt by the farmer to sell his wares in the market.
The English read: Dates-best price. Cold Bebsi. “Bebsi?” I
asked. “Pepsi,” Walt said. “I read about it on the Internet.
There’s no ‘p’ in Arabic. Everyone here calls the soda Bebsi.”
“So you have to have Bebsi with your bizza?” “Brobably.”
Taken from The Throne of Fire by Rick Riordan. This quote is a conversation between Sadie and Walt.
Nothing about this sentence but it could make me laughed. Until I realized that I did not know there is no ‘p’ in Arabic before. Whereas, I have known Arabic alphabet since I was 6 years old very well. I thought Arabic is the most completely alphabet because it has more than two symbols for some letters. It is still difficult for me to spell them with the right pronunciation.
