A not so funny aside.

French used to be the "universal language" of business. Supplanted sometime beginning in the 60s by English when the USA was becoming the dominant world economic power. I've traveled plenty of places in the world, if you're not too far off the beaten path, someone in the store will speak English. Heck, I've been to the middle of nowhere China and all the school kids are learning English. Ironically its one of the ways they advance in that society.

You all had better hope that China doesn't become the world economic power, Mandarin is a b*tch to learn.
