David Cameron was interviewing for an Asian translator to accompany him on a foreign trip.
The first candidate was asked, in Asian, what he thought of the current situation in Afghanistan: his reply, in English, of giant crab claws on a bed of crusty wholemeal bread took the panel by surprise!
Thinking that the question was too difficult, the candidate was asked in Asian, which football team he supported; again the reply of flaked crab on freshly toasted crusty buns amazed the panel.
To confirm that the candidate had no understanding of the Asian language, he was asked what time it was; again there was bewilderment with his reply of lobster thermadore on crusty bagels.
In total frustration, David asked the panel if anybody had a clue why the candidate was being interviewed for an Asian translator's job when he couldn't speak any Asian?
A helpful voice came from the back of the room that candidate could only speak crustacean.
