The Language Barrier

A Swiss tourist was visiting Australia. He pulled up at a bus stop where two locals were waiting.

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

The two Aussies just stared at him.

“Excusez-moi, parlez vous Francais?” he tried.

The two continued to stare.

“Parlare Italiano?”

No response.

“Hablan ustedes Espanol?”

Still nothing, and the the frustrated Swiss drove off in disgust.

The one Aussie turned to the other and said, “Y’know, maybe we should learn a foreign language.”

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


How do you make a Swiss roll?

Push him down a hill.
