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 stopped and asked them, 'Entschuldigung, koennen Sie Deutsch sprechen?' The two lads looked at each other blankly and then stared 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, disappointed. One of the boys turned to the second and said, 'Y'know, maybe we should learn a foreign language!' 'Why?' says the other youth, 'That guy knew four languages, and look what good it did him!'
