U Ravana's hooking (Sri Lankan)
Posted by Shyamon Jayasinghe on 2/16/2001:

U Ravana was onc living in a twin house. A burgher family was living the next door. One night when U Ravana was making love he suddenly heard a noice at the gate and the dog barking very loud. He stopped , rushed and opened the door. The burgher gent too came out and said "when I heard the dog barking, I came hooking". U Ravana prompted replying " Is that so, I too was hooking" . He had thought 'hooking' means same in English as the closer word in Sinhalese.
