    Why we speak English


    A US Navy Admiral was attending a naval conferencethat included 20 Admirals from the
    US, English, Canadian, Australian and French Navies. At a reception, he found himself standingwith a huge group of officers that included personnel from most of the countries.

    Everyone was chatting away in English asthey sipped their drinks, but a French Admiral suddenly complained that, whereas Europeans learn many languages, Americans learn only English!

    He then asked, "Why is it that we always have to speak English in these conferences, rather than speaking French?"

    Without hesitating, the American Admiral replied, "Maybe it's because the Brit's, Canadians, Aussie's and Americans arranged it so you wouldn't have to speak German."

    You could have heard a pin drop.

    Great comeback, but in this day and age of PC, he would have been retired and the public would have been given all kinds of excuses.
