Diplomatic Incident

Diplomatic incident                                                      
This is a true story from the Japanese Embassy in US!!!   

A few days ago, Prime Minister Hatoyama was given some Basic English         
conversation training before he visits Washington and meets president    
Barack Obama...                                                          
The instructor told Hatoyama Prime Minister, when you shake hand with         
President Obama, please say "how are you". Then Mr. Obama should say, "I 
am fine, and you?" Now, you should say "me too". Afterwards we,          
translators, will do the work for you."                                  
It looks quite simple, but the truth is...                               
When Hatoyama met Obama , he mistakenly said "who are you?" (Instead of "How r
Mr. Obama was a bit shocked but still managed to react with humor:       
"Well, I'm Michelle's husband, ha-ha..."                                 
Then Hatoyama replied "me too, ha-ha.. .".                                    
Then there was a long silence in the meeting room.
