An African chieftain flew to the United States to visit the |
president. When he arrived at the airport, a host of newsmen
and television cameramen met him. One of the reporters asked
the chief if he had a comfortable flight.
The chief made a series of weird noises: "Screech, scratch,
honk, buzz, whistle, z-z-z-z..." Then he added in perfect
English, "Yes, I had a very nice flight."
Another reporter asked, "Chief, do you plan to visit the
Washington Monument while you're in the area?"
The chief made the same noises: "Screech, scratch, honk,
buzz, whistle, z-z-z-z..." Then he said, "Yes, and I also
plan to visit the White House and the Capitol Building."
"Where did you learn to speak such flawless English?" asked
the next reporter.
The chief replied, "Screech, scratch, honk, buzz, whistle,
z-z-z-z... From the short-wave radio."
