GLOBALIZATION DEFINED!


GLOBALIZATION DEFINED!

Finally, a definition of globalization that I can understand and to
which I now can relate:

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 question my spelling),
followed closely by Italian paparazzi,
on Japanese motorcycles,
treated by an American doctor,
using Brazilian medicines.

This is sent to you by an American,
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 Globalization!
