Two Polish peasants are loitering by the side of the road one day when a
tourist pulls up in his car. He winds down the window and asks: "Do you speak
English?". The peasants both shrug their shoulders. The tourist then tries
"Parlez vous Francais?". Again the peasants plainly don't understand. The
tourist then shows off his skill by trying German, Russian, Italian, and
Spanish, but each time to no avail. Finally he drives off in disgust. One
peasant comments (in Polish): "It must be wonderful to be able to speak so
many languages." But the other retorts: "Pah! Look how far it got him!"
