A translation joke to make you laugh out loud.

==========================================

A mouse was being chased by a cat through the alleyways of a city. Turning a corner, the desperate mouse hid under a stack of crates. From there, the mouse contemplated its situation; eventually, it would have to leave its hiding place, but it did not know how to tell if the cat was gone. Suddenly, the barking of a dog interrupted its thoughts.
"If a dog is barking," thought the mouse, "that must mean that the cat has fled, and it is safe to go out". The mouse slinked out from beneath the crates, but immediately found itself face to face with the cat! "But I heard a dog barking!" insisted the mouse. "How is it that you are still here?"
"In a multicultural community," replied the cat, "one must be bilingual."
