A Swiss man visiting Sydney, Australia pulls up at a bus stop where two locals are waiting. "Entschuldigung, koennen Sie Deutsch sprechen?" he asks. The two Aussies just stare at him. "Excusez-moi, parlez vous Francais?" he tries. The two continue to stare blankly. "Parlare Italiano?" No response. "Hablan ustedes Espanol?" Still nothing. The Swiss guy gives up and drives off. The first Aussie turns to the second and says, "Y'know, maybe we should learn a foreign language." "What for?" says the other. "That guy knew four languages, and it didn't do him any good!"
