Looking pretty good for a dead guy

The power of language

by on Oct.12, 2009, under Ramblings

Not that I intend this blog to become a repository of jokes that make me laugh, but I have to post this one. It made me think of my Dad as well (which is good) insofar as this more or less sums his attitude to Europe completely.

A Swiss guy, visiting the U.S., pulled up at a bus stop where two locals were waiting.

“Entschuldigung, koennen Sie Deutsch sprechen?” he asked.

The two Yanks just stared at him.

“Excusez-moi, parlez vous Francais?” he tried. The two continued to stare.

“Parlare Italiano?”

Other than a glance at each other, there was still no response.

“Hablan ustedes Espanol?”

Still nothing.

The Swiss guy gave up and drove off. The first Yank turned to the second and said, “Y’know, maybe we should learn a foreign language.”

“Why?” the other replied. “That guy knew four languages, and it didn’t do him any good.”
