When Mulla Nasrudin arrived at the immigration barrier in London, the officer in charge asked:

'Where are you from?'

Nasrudin said: 'Grrrr ... The East.'

'Name?'

'Mulla, sssssss, Nasrrrrgrrudin!'

'Have you an impediment in your speech?'

'Wheee-eee -- no!'

'Then why do you talk like that?'

'Pip-pip-pip -- I grr -- learnt it from English By Radio!'
