    No offense intended to my U.K. friends with the root of this, but I thought, regardless, it gives the term a bit of color...

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

    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 an Englishman,

    using Bill Gates's technology,

    and you're probably reading this on your computer,

    that use 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!
