Speaking in Tongues

January 5, 2012 | by

A Swiss tourist is traveling through Chelm and looking for directions, he pulls up at a bus stop where Chaim and Yankel are waiting. "Entschuldigung, koennen Sie Deutsch sprechen?" he asks.

Chaim and Yankel just stare at him.

"Excusez-moi, parlez vous Francais?" he tries. The two continue to stare. "Parlare Italiano?" No response. "Hablan ustedes Espanol?" Still nothing.

The Swiss tourist finally drives off, frustrated. Chaim turns to Yankel and says, "You know, maybe we should learn a foreign language."

"Why?" says Yankel. "That guy knew four languages, and it didn't do him any good."
