Question: What is the quintessential example of Globalization?

Answer: Princess Diana’s death.

Question: How come?

Answer : An English princess
with an Egyptian boyfriend crashes
in a French tunnel,
riding in a
German car
with a Dutch engine,
driven by a Belgian
who was drunk on Scottish whisky
followed closely by Italian Paparazzi
riding Japanese motorcycles,
victims were treated by an American doctor,
using Brazilian medicines
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. Trucked to you by Mexican illegals

That, my friends,
is Globalization
