WA makes fun of himself during a lunch with the Mexican president https://www.nu.nl/algemee...mexicaanse-president.html
"...King Willem-Alexander teased himself on Tuesday during his lunch with the Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto and his wife at Noordeinde Palace.
In his eulogy, the king recalled his language blunder of nine years ago, when he unintentionally rude in a speech during a state visit to Mexico.
Instead of "a sleeping shrimp is taken away by the tide," Willem-Alexander said that the shrimps "went to hell"; not exactly the language that is expected of a heir to the throne in good company.
In the rest of Latin America the sentence would be understood as the then Crown Prince meant, but in Mexico it turned out to have a slightly different meaning.
"Almost ten years ago I gave a speech in your country that caused some fuss," the king said to the Mexican president on Tuesday. "I'm sure you know what I'm talking about," he continued, nodding Peña Nieto in agreement.
"The first course shows what we prefer to do with 'camarones' (shrimp, ed.)," Willem-Alexander said, after which he delivered a toast to the president's couple.
Lunch then started with a shrimp cocktail...."
