Subject: Why bother to learn foreign languages? <clean>

An Swiss man, looking for directions, pulls up at a bus stop where two Americans are
waiting. "Entschuldigung, koennen Sie Deutsch sprechen?" he asks. The two
Americans just stare at him.

"Excusez-moi, parlez-vous Français?" he tries. The two continue to stare.

"Parlano l'italiano?" No response.

"Hablan ustedes Espanol?" Still nothing.

The Swiss guy drives off, totally frustrated. The first American turns to the second and
says, "Y'know, maybe we should learn a foreign language." "Why?" says the other.
"That guy knew four languages, and it didn't do him any good."

Subject: Night Out

An angry wife was complaining about her husband spending all his
free time in a bar, so one night he took her along with him.
"What'll you have?" he asked.

"Oh, I don't know. The same as you I suppose," she replied. So,
the husband ordered a couple of Jack Daniel's and threw his down
in one shot.

His wife watched him, then took a sip from her glass and
immediately spat it out. "Yuck, that's TERRIBLE!" she spluttered.
"I don't know how you can drink this stuff!"

"Well, there you go," cried the husband. "And you think I'm out
enjoying myself every night!"

Subject: Looked in the mirror lately?

While waiting for my first appointment in the reception room of a new =
dentist, I noticed his certificate, which bore his full name. Suddenly, =
I remembered that a tall, handsome boy with the same name had been in my =
high school class some 40 years ago. Upon seeing him, however, I quickly =
discarded any such thought. This balding, gray-haired man with the =
deeply lined face was too old to have been my classmate.

After he had examined my teeth, I asked him if he had attended the local =
high school. "Yes," he replied.

"When did you graduate?" I asked. He answered, "In 1958."

"Why, you were in my class!" I exclaimed.

He looked at me closely and then asked, "What did you teach?"

Subject: Underwater fantasy

+Got this from my friend Ana E. Muss+

   For our 10th anniversay my wife and I vacationed in Hawaii, where we went snorkeling.  After an hour in the water everyone got back on the boat, except for me and one beautiful young woman.
   As I continued my underwater exploring, I noticed that everywhere I swam, she swam.   I snorkeled for another 20 minutes.  So did she.  I climbed back in the boat.  So did she.  I felt very flattered and, as I took off my fins, asked her coyly why she had stayed in the water for so long.
   "I'm the lifeguard," she replied matter-of-factly.  "I couldn't get out until you did."
