A Swiss guy visited Sydney, Australia, and pulled up at a bus stop where two locals were waiting.
"Entschuldigung, koennen Sie Deutsch sprechen?" he asked.
The two Aussies just stared at him.
"Excusez-moi, parlez vous Francais?" he tried.
The two continued to stare.
Other than a glance at each other, there was still no response.
"Hablan ustedes Espanol?"
The Swiss guy gave up and drove off, extremely disgusted.
When he was gone, the first Aussie turned to the second and said, "Y'know, maybe we should learn a foreign language."
"Why?" the other replied. "That guy knew four languages, and it didn't do him any good."
If the above headline found on Stuff's website is accurate, then allowing for the 5-8 weeks between vaccines, we should have some sort of freedom by Christmas - fingers crossed😉
A popular Christmas light show has been cancelled due to public safety concerns and the uncertainty of Covid-19 restrictions.
Museum of Transport and Technology (MOTAT) announced on Wednesday that the 10th anniversary celebration of Christmas Lights will not go ahead this year.
MOTAT spokeswoman Sally Manuireva said the decision to cancel the event was a difficult one, as it is the museum’s largest event of the year.
The Auckland event was attended by over 60,000 visitors over 12 nights last year.
“While I know this may be disappointing news for many families who were looking forward to this event, keeping our visitors safe is our top priority,” Manuireva said.
“We’ve decided to make this call now to give our suppliers transparency and allow our team to focus on our summer programming.”
This marks the first occasion where MOTAT’s Christmas Lights has been canned.
MOTAT will still light up its heritage Pumphouse building and erect a 20ft Christmas tree which will be visible from Great North Road.
The Museum will release ‘12 Days of Christmas’, which consists of free online crafts and activities which can be accessed on the online education platform MOTAT.FUN.
