Inspiring Thought for the Day

Sometimes to truly understand something, you have to read between the lions.

 

I am here at a Chinese restaurant in Germany with Thomas Baeuerlein, a PSoC Specialist for Arrow.  Sounds like the start of a joke, An American and a German wok into a Chinese buffet and ..  (The one of you that comes up with the best punch line gets a free PSoC5 dev kit.)

 

I spent a week going around Germany visiting German industrial customers.  Some very interesting productions.  I believe Germans have a natural inclination for the design of Industrial products and will continue to be a power house in this area in the future.

... surprisingly, the german ordered something in the finest mandarin language.
The American asked the waiter to bring him some "original chinese speciality"

After a while the waiter returned with a sweet-and sour fried telephonebook for the German and a Rolex imitate for the American.

An American and German wok into a Chinese buffet and sit down for lunch. The two engineers discussed many things, including the lions they walked between at the front door. However, being from opposite sides of the Atlantic, they could not agree on their estimated weight. Leaving the buffet, they ask the owner what each lion weighs. Dryly, the owner replies: "Won Ton."
