A furniture dealer from Arkansas decided that he wanted to expand the line of furniture in his store, so he decided to go to Paris, France to see what he could find. He met with some manufacturers and selected a line that he thought would sell well in Arkansas.

To celebrate the new acquisition, he decided to visit a small bistro and have a glass of wine.

Before long, a very beautiful young Parisian girl came to his table, asked him something in French (which he did not understand), and motioned toward the chair. He invited her to sit down.

He tried to speak to her in English, but she didn't speak his language so, he took a napkin and drew a picture of a wine glass and showed it her. She nodded,and he ordered a glass of wine for her. After sitting together for a while, he took another napkin, and drew a picture of a plate with food on it, and she nodded.

So, they left the bistro and found a quiet cafe that featured a small group playing romantic music. They ordered dinner, and after he took another napkin and drew a picture of a couple dancing. She nodded, and they got up to dance. They danced until the cafe closed.

Back at their table, the young lady took a napkin and drew a picture of a four-poster bed. To this day, he has no idea how she figured out he was in the furniture business....

Some drink at the fountain of knowledge. Others just gargle.
