Question: Which event most clearly shows the extent of Globalisation?

Answer: Princess Diana's death.

Question: Why?


An English princess

with an Egyptian boyfriend

crashes in a French tunnel,

driving a German car

with a Dutch engine,

driven by a Belgian who was drunk

on Scottish whisky,(check the bottle before you change the spelling)

followed closely by Italian Paparazzi,

on Japanese motorcycles;

treated by an American doctor,

using Brazilian medicines.

This is sent to you by an Australian,

using Bill Gates' American technology,

and you're probably reading this on one of the IBM clones,

that use Taiwanese chips,

and a Korean monitor,

assembled by Bangladeshi workers

in a Singapore plant,

transported by Indian lorry-drivers,

hijacked by Indonesians,

unloaded by Sicilian longshoremen,

and trucked to you by Mexican illegals.....

That, my friends, is Globalisation.

Heh. Actually, my PC was assembled by Thais and the monitor was made in Mexico....
