> A true story from the Japanese Embassy in US:
> Prime Minister Mori was given some basic English
> conversation training before he visits Washington
> and meets with President Bill Clinton.
> The instructor told Mori " Prime Minister, when you
> shake hand with President Clinton, please say
> 'how are you'. Then Mr Clinton should say
> "I am fine, and you ?" Now you should say 'me too'.
> Afterwards we translators will do all the work for you."
> It looks quite simple, but the truth is ................
> When Mori met Clinton, he mistakenly said "Who Are You ?".
> Mr Clinton was a bit shocked but still managed to react
> with humor : "Well, I am Hilary's husband, ha ha..."
> Then Mori replied confidently "Me too, ha ha ha.."
> Then there was a long silent moment in the meeting room.
