Why Speak Many Languages?

A Swiss guy visited Sydney, Australia, and pulled up to a bus stop where Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, on vacation, were waiting.

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

Stanley and Oliver 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, shaking his head.

When he was gone, Oliver turned to Stanley and, twirling the end of his tie, said, “Y’know, Stanley, maybe we should learn a foreign language.”

“What for, Ollie?” asked Stanley. “That fellow knew four languages, and it didn’t do him any good.”
