Daily Joke: Man Who Does Not Speak English Came to America to Earn Some Money

A man had just moved to America to start a new life, but he did not know any English. However, he figured he would learn the language on the job. So he headed to the job center to find work. 

First, he tried his hand at the local theater, landing a job as a chorus singer. During his time there, he learned to say, "Mi-mi-mi-mi-mi-mi-mi." However, he was not good at the role, so he tried out something else.

 Next, he took an introductory course for the army and learned to say, "Yes sir!" However, he did not feel the army was right for him, so he decided to move on to something else. 

He had always loved cooking, so he worked at a restaurant next. During his time there, he learned to say, "Knives and forks, knives and forks," but he did not enjoy the demanding pace of the restaurant business. So he started working at a candy factory where he learned the phrase, "Goody-goody gumdrops!"

A few days later, a terrible murder happened in his neighborhood, and he was the first person to be interrogated by police.

The officer asked him, "Who killed the victim?"

The man responded, "Mi-mi-mi-mi-mi-mi-mi."

The officer was surprised that the man was so forthcoming, so he asked, "Sorry, sir, are you saying you murdered the victim?"

"Yes, sir!" the man said with a salute.

The officer continued to question him, "Okay, sir, what did you use to harm the victim?"

The man nervously responded, "Knives and forks, knives and forks."

"Sir if this is true, you will be facing a lot of time in prison," the officer warned him.

"Goody-goody gumdrops!"

Oh no! That poor man! If you need another laugh, the joke below is another hilarious situation about people who were lost in translation!

THE AIRPORT STAFF

One day, two men were working at the airport when a foreign passenger came up to them. He asked them where he could find his luggage in Spanish, but neither of the men could understand him. So they raised their hands and shook their heads, and gestured that they did not understand.

The passenger then asked again but in German this time. However, the two men still did not understand. The passenger was getting notably more irritated, but he asked again, this time in French. Still, the men did not understand. So he asked again but in Polish. But the employees still did not understand

Defeated and very annoyed, the passenger walked away and went to find someone who could help him. One of the employees then said, "Gosh, maybe we should learn a second language."

The second man responded, "Now why would we do that?"

T"Well, then we might be able to help foreign passengers, like that guy, for example!" the first man said.

The second man scoffed and said, "Agh! Learning a second language would not help. Look at that guy, he knows four languages, but that did not help him!"

Well, he does have a point... If you need more jokes, check out our large joke collection, starting with this one about the complexities of the English language!
