Best Re-Telling of an Old Joke
If it were not for the US of A, the French would be wearing lederhosen.
But an even better joke (at French expense, of course) is re-told by Mark Petersen from the US Naval Academy at Large,
A US Navy Admiral was attending a naval conference that included 20 Admirals from the US, English, Canadian, Australian and French Navies.
At a reception, he found himself standing with a huge group of officers that included personnel from most of the countries.
Everyone was chatting away in English as they sipped their drinks, but a French admiral suddenly complained that, whereas Europeans learn many languages. Americans learn only English.
He then asked.”Why is it that we always have to speak English in these conferences rather than speaking French?”
Without hesitating, the American Admiral replied, “Maybe it’s because the Brit’s, Canadians, Aussie’s and Americans arranged it so you wouldn’t have to speak German”
You could’ve heard a pin drop.
