       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 
change the spelling),
followed closely by Italian Paparazzi,
on Japanese motorcycles;
treated by an American doctor,
using Brazilian medicines.
This is sent to you by a Canadian,
using American Bill Gates's 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 truck drivers,
hijacked by Indonesians,
  unloaded by Sicilian longshoremen,
and trucked to you by Mexican illegals…
That, my friends,  is Globalization.

This is funny. As much as I still miss her. She was a lovely woman.

We both agree on that one, Opie.

Wow, you got them all covered there, Odie.
I miss Diana too, she had grace and class and
was thrust into a difficult situation. She was just starting to enjoy life again, and this tragedy happened. Some still say it wasn't an Accident (Dodi's dad).
We'll never know the truth. I hope she RIP.

Bunni, I have say I think she was a real class act.
