Funny Jokes – English vs. French

An officer in the U.S. Naval reserve was attending a conference of
officers from the U.S. Navy and the French Navy. At a cocktail
reception, he found himself in a small group that included personnel
from both navies. A French admiral started complaining that whereas
Europeans learned many languages, Americans learned only English. He
then asked: “Why is it that we have to speak English at these
conferences rather than speak French?”

Without hesitating, an American Admiral replied: “Maybe it’s because
the Brits, Canadians, Aussies and Americans arranged it so you
wouldn’t have to speak German.” The group became silent.
