What is the truest definition of Globalization?

Answer: Princess Diana's death.

Question: How come?

Answer: 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 a Canadian

using Bill Gates' technology,

and you're probably reading this on your computer

that uses 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


Jennifer’s Wedding.

Jennifer’s wedding day was fast approaching. Nothing could dampen her excitement --

Not even her parent's nasty divorce.

Her mother had found the PERFECT dress to wear
and would be the best dressed mother- of-the-bride ever!

A week later, Jennifer was horrified to learn that her father's new
young wife had bought the exact same dress!

Jennifer asked her to exchange it, but she refused.

"Absolutely not, I look like a million bucks in this dress, and I'm
wearing it," she replied.

Jennifer told her mother who graciously said,

"Never mind sweetheart. I'll get another dress.
after all, it's your special day."

A few days later, they went shopping and did find another Gorgeous

When they stopped for lunch, Jennifer asked her mother,

"Aren't you going to return the other dress?
you really don't have another occasion where you could wear it."

Her mother just smiled and replied,
"Of course I do, dear. I'm wearing it to the rehearsal dinner the
night before the wedding."
