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

Consider Princess Diana's death:

An English princess
with an Egyptian boyfriend,
crashes in a French tunnel,
traveling in a German car,
with a Dutch engine,
driven by a Belgian
who was drunk on Scotch 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 your English editor
using American Bill Gates' technology,
and you're reading this on your computer,
that uses Taiwanese chips,
and a Korean monitor,
assembled by Bangladeshi workers
in a Singapore plant,
transported to the docks by Indian lorry drivers,
shipped in Greek ships,
siezed by Somali pirates,
ransom paid by London insurance companies,
(which is denied by the British Government)
unloaded by Sicilian dockers,
and delivered to you by illegal imigrants from all corners of the world.

That, you see, is Globalization
