English Can Make You Smile - Language & Humor

A few days ago, Japanese Prime Minister Mori was given some basic English conversation training before he visits Washington and meets President Barack Obama . 
The instructor told him, 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 quiet simple but, the truth is..

When Mori met Obama
He mistakenly said 'Who are you?' (instead of 'How are you?')

Mr. Obama was a bit shocked but still managed to react with humor;
'Well, I am Michelle's husband. Ha ha..'

Then Mori replied 'Me too, ha ha ha'

Then there was a long silence in the meeting room..
