And this is the joke a Zürich lass told me (albeit about a chap from Bern, and I'm sure you might know why
There's this guy from Bern who owns a furniture business and he decides to exhibit at an International Furniture Exhibition in Paris. The organisors ask him if he'd like to give a talk at the conference about the state of the furniture industry in Switzerland. He's very flattered to be asked but declines because he doesn't speak French.
"No problem" they tell him, write the speech in German and we'll translate it into all the main international languages for the delegates. So he agrees.
He makes his speech which, although not very entertaining, he is very proud of and that night he's celebrating with a glass of wine at the bar of his hotel in Paris when a beautiful French girl sits next to him and smiles at him.
He thinks to himself "If only I could speak French I could ask her if she'd like a drink"..... but he has a good idea, he grabs a piece of paper and draws a picture of a glass of wine on it and shows it to her. "Oh oui!" she says, so he gets a glass of red wine for her and they raise their glasses.
The beautiful French girl continues to smile at and flirt with the guy from Bern. He wonders... "would she like to have dinner with me?" so he draws a picture of a plate of food and she replies enthusiastically "Oh oui!!" So they go into the restaurant of the hotel and enjoy a delicious French dinner.
All the time the beautiful French girl is smiling and flirting with him and he wonders.... "would she like to go dancing with me?" so he draws a picture of a couple dancing and the beautiful French girl replies ecstatically "OH OUI!!!!!"
So they walk round the corner to a night club and dance until the early hours, all the time the beautiful French girl is smiling and flirting with him until finally at 3am in the morning the beautiful French girl gets a piece of paper and draws a picture of a fabulous wooden four poster bed.
And until this day the the guy from Bern cannot understand how she knew
that he was in the furniture business.
