THANKS SO MUCH.

FOLKS, YOU KNOW-- FOLKS, SOMEHAVE SAID THAT THE UNIVERSAL

LANGUAGE IS MUSIC.

OTHERS SAY THAT IT'S LOVE.

YET, I'VE ALWAYS HAD TROUBLECOMMUNICATING VIA SAXOPHONE

DRY HUMPING.

THE REAL UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE ISENGLISH.

IT'S A VERBAL SKELETON KEY YOUCAN USE TO TALK WITH ANYONE ON

EARTH, EXCEPT YOUR DRY CLEANER.

DONDE ESTA MY PANTS, ABILIO!

SO IT'S NO WONDER THE WORLD ISDESPERATE TO LEARN ENGLISH,

WHICH HAS OPENED THE DOOR FORTHE BRAZILIAN LANGUAGE TRAINING

COMPANY C.N.A. TO EXPLOIT ADANGEROUS NEW SOURCE OF ENGLISH

EXPERTISE.

STUDENTS IN THE U.S.A. LIVING INRETIREMENT HOMES

>> HELLO?

HELLO, HELLO.

CAN YOU HEAR ME?

>> YES, I CAN, CAN YOU HEAR ME.

>> I LIVE WITH MY OLD BROTHER

HE HAS 23 YEARS.

COULD SAY, "HE IS 23 YEARS OLD."

>> Stephen: NATION, THIS ISTHE MOST TERRIFYING THING I HAVE

EVER SEEN.

AND I HAVE 50 YEARS.

( LAUGHTER )NOW, THAT YOUNG BRAZILIANS ARE

LEARNING ENGLISH FROM OUR SENIORCITIZENS, IT WON'T BE LONG UNTIL

THEY HAVE FLUID DISCUSSIONSABOUT SHERBET, EARLY BIRD

NATION, THESE CARING HUMANRELATIONSHIPS ARE AN

ABOMINATION.

IN AMERICA YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSEDTO COMMUNICATE WITH THE ELDERLY.

YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO STORE YOURFEELINGS UP ALL YEAR UNTIL

CHRISTMAS WHEN YOU THERETO ITOUT WITH ONE EMOTIONALLY

CHARGED, "THANK YOU FOR THESWEATER."

WORSE, THESE ANCHOR OLDIES AREARMING THE HISPANIC HORDES

PEOPLE WHO BEAT HITLER.

THEN HOW WILL WE BEAT HITLERNEXT TIME?
