A Russian couple are walking along the road when a car full

of tourists pulls up beside them.

“Excuse me, do you speak English?” asks one of the

passengers in the car.

The couple just look blank and shrug their shoulders.

“Sprechen Sie Deutsch?” they ask. Still no response.

Within the next 30 seconds, the people in the car go

through five different languages – French, Italian, Spanish,

Chinese and Polish – but still the couple look at them

uncomprehending. Eventually the tourists give up and drive

away and the Russian woman turns to her companion and

remarks, “It must be wonderful to speak so many different

languages.”

“Rubbish,” replies the other. “It didn’t get them very far.”
