What is globalization?

Question: 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 from Morocco, using Bill Gates's (an American) technology and you're probably reading this on your computer that uses Taiwanese chips and a Korean monitor, assembled by Bangladeshi workers in a Singaporean plant, transported by Indian lousy-drivers, hijacked by Indonesians, unloaded by Sicilian longshoremen, and trucked to you by Mexicans...and now being read by a FILIPINO who should be working instead!

That, my friend, is Globalization.


From my inbox. No offense meant to any of the nationalities mentioned. As for me, I better get back to work. :-)

Wait a minute. It's a Sunday! :-)
