    Why do we have to speak English?

    An officer in the U.S. Naval reserve was attending a conference that

    included admirals from both the U.S. Navy and the French Navy. At a

    cocktail reception, he found himself in a small group that included

    personnel from both navies


    The French admiral started complaining that whereas Europeans learned

    many languages, Americans learned only English. He then asked "Why is

    it that we have to speak English in these conferences rather than you

    speak French?"

    Without hesitating, the American Admiral replied, "Maybe it's because

    the Brits, Canadians, Aussies and Americans arranged it so you would

    not have to speak in German."

    The group became silent.
