Language Barrier

A Swiss man is looking for directions, and he pulls up at a bus stop where two Americans are waiting. "Entschuldigung, kannen Sie Deutsch sprechen?" he asks. The two Americans just stare at him. "Excusez-moi, parlez vous Francais?" he tries. They continue to stare. "Praat julle Afrikaans?" The Americans just look at each other. "Parlare Italiano?" No response. "Hablan ustedes Espanol?" Still nothing. Disgusted, the Swiss guy drives off. One American guy turns to other and says, "Y'know, maybe we should learn a foreign language." "Why?" says the other. "That guy knew five languages and it didn't do him no good either." --

I hope it sets you up for a fantastic day honey! See we all think the whole world should speak english - we are selfish (a bit) aren't we? xxx

Hi mummymo. It is not selfish at all, I'd like to call it PRIDE. And we should be proud of our own language. Speaking of which, I am deeply grateful and proud of this best response thing and it's all because of you. Cheers! Another glass of water for me.

The top ten signs that someone is using your e-mail account 10. "Honey, why is an 18-wheeler from Amazon.com backing into our driveway?" 9. One Secret Service agent is sitting on your head while another is slapping cuffs on you. 8. Apparently, your flame war with DonCorleone@mafia.com is about to turn ugly. 7. When you log on, your computer says "You've got lawsuits!" 6. You're suddenly getting more Spam than the Hormel outlet store. 5. Sotheby's says the Rembrandt is yours and that you now owe them $71,000,000 and change. 4. You now have 130,000 ClubTop5 subscriptions and the list moderator is on the cover of Business Week. 3. Terse "Knock it off, Oedipus" e-mail from your Mom. 2. Your wife calls you at the office to report that Pogdi, your Pakistani mail-order bride, has arrived. 1. "The resistance welcomes your involvement. Your contact information has been forwarded to a local insurgent who will bring supplies and reinforcements to you immediately."
