If a lion could talk, we could not understand him
Wittgenstein, Philosophical Investigations
Oddly, Hungarians can definitely talk, and yet I can't understand them, either.  Is that because I don't understand Hungarian, or because I can't understand Hungarians?   And does this mean they are lions?  Ah, philosophy...

If you COULD understand Hungarian, all they would be saying is "My hovercraft is full of eels."
