Some years ago I was lectured in a train for 2 hours by a well-oiled Parisian, who spoke with a dreadful accent and grammar, about how the English were too lazy and too stupid to learn any other languages. Quite an argument developed.

Just before he got off the train, I asked him if he spoke any English, or indeed any language other than French.

"Non," he said, and left, convinced of the soundness of his reasoning.
