I highly doubt it. They would just say vamos... Don't even get me started on the whole "comprende" crap and the oh, so many attempts of English-speakers to sound like they understand other languages.

Nothing wrong with not speaking another language, when your own is spoken everywhere in the world, but this is just ridiculous... 'vamoose', forsooth! (I've totally been listening to too much Wodehouse lately).
Fun fact (not necessarily related) - the word bugger comes from the word Bulgarian Drinking Beverage

RE: Ranting corner
So can't the whole world just stop everything for a day while my city has a snow day? The roads are brutal and I don't want to leave the house again, especially since I can see a vehicle wrapped around a tree in front of my house. Please? Because you know, it's all about me anyway. Big Grin

English takes words from other languages and permutes them, and has been doing so since before it was English. Ketchup/catsup, igloo, mosquito, barbecue, pemmican, raj, dollar, pistol, robot, rendezvous, monsignor, vassal, surveillance, sabot, ....

English follows other languages down alleys and mugs them for valuables.

I totally agree with you, but vamoose is just... ugh. It looks wrong and sounds even worse. No

Obama is president, again.
Great... I'm going to be homeless when I graduate now.
What was the US thinking when they elected him back into office?!

You will have to bear the guilt.

Exactly how is Obama making you homeless?
