Three men, an Italian, a French and a Portuguese went for a job interview in England.
Before the interview, they were told that they must compose a sentence in English with three main words: “green”, “pink” and “yellow”.
The Italian was first: “I wake up in the morning. I see the yellow sun. I see the green grass and I think to myself, I hope it will be a pink day.”
The French was next: I wake up in the morning, I eat a yellow banana, a green pepper and in the evening I watch the pink panther on TV.”
Last was the Portuguese: “I wake up in the morning, I hear the phone “green…green…, I pink up the phone and I say: Yellow?”
