A man is visiting a foreign country but does not speak the language that they speak
there. He decides to go to a church service, but the priest is speaking the native
language, so the American man just does whatever the man in front of him does.
When the man in front of him stands, so does the American man. When the man in
front of him sits, so does the American man. At one point, the priest says something,
and the man in front of him stood. So the American man stood too. Everyone in the
church gasped, so the American man hurriedly sat back down. Later, the American
man figured out that the priest was congratulating a birth. When he had asked who
was the father, and both men stood up, it had caused some confusion!
