AlisonW - The .com test site

This site is currently being redeveloped. Although it will work fine it will continue to look terrible for a while yet. Sorry!

A Swiss guy, looking for directions, pulls up at a bus stop where two Englishmen are waiting.

"Entschuldigung, können Sie Deutsch sprechen?" He asks.

The two Englishmen just stare at him.

"Excusez-moi, parlez-vous français?" The two continue to stare.

"Parlate italiano?" No response. "Hablan Ustedes espagnol?" Still nothing.

The Swiss guy drives off, extremely disgusted.

The first Englishman turns to the second and says: "Y'know, maybe we should learn a foreign language…"




"Why?" says the other, "that bloke knew four languages, and it didn't do him any good."
