"CAN'T PAY"

"CAN'T PAY"

 

In Malaysia, a bunch of Chinese were at a restaurant for some kind of celebration.

As they lifted up their glasses to drink, they called out loudly, "Mgang bei"  (literally "empty cup")

 

In another corner were several tourists from Britain who were irritated by the noise.

One of them eventually was so annoyed that he stood up and shouted back,

"okay, if you CAN'T PAY, I will pay for you just to be quiet"

WHAT REALLY KILLS YOU

 

For those of you who watch what you eat, here's the final word on nutrition and health.  It's a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting nutritional studies.

1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
3. The Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
4. The Italians drink a lot of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
5. The Germans drink a lot of beer and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

CONCLUSION:  

Eat and drink what you like.  Apparently what kills you is speaking English.

"MAN DOES NOT LIVE BY BREAD ALONE"

 

A Chinese jointed a local tour group in London. After a few days around town eating bread and butter with others, eventually they were on their way to Chinatown.

When Chinatown was in sight, he cheered and shouted, "Great, I can have a decent meal now." "After all, you should know that 'man does not live by bread alone!'"
