Learn Chinese?

14 October 2013

2 businessmen were sat waiting for the first speaker at a sales conference. One of them turns to the other and introduces himself, his company and the products he'd like the other man to buy.

Then one of the men remarks on a news item in today's Telegraph: "I see we're looking to extend trade links with China".
"Yeah. Do you think that means we should start learning Chinese?", replies the other.
"Mandarin?", asks the first.
"No thanks - I just eat an orange."
