A Swiss man, on holiday in Dublin, needed directions. He was standing outside Davy Byrne's pub when he saw two youths walking by so he stops them and asks, "Entschuldigung, koennen Sie Deutsch sprechen?" The two lads look at each other blankly and stare back at him. "Excusez-moi, parlez vous Français ?" he tries. The two continue to stare. "Parlare Italiano?" Still absolutely no response from the two lads. "Hablan ustedes Espanol?" The Dublin lads remain totally silent. The Swiss guy walks off extremely disappointed and downhearted that he had not been understood. One of the boys turns to the second and says, "Y'know, maybe we should learn a foreign language!" "Why?" says the youth, "That guy knew four languages, and it didn't do him any good!"
