Hahaha, not that funny!

I believe that people behave differently when speaking different languages. This difference shows itself in characteristics, popularity and in general in the person you are trying to know and communicate with.  assume that you travel to a country where your knowledge of the local spoken language is dramatically low. You would be able to communicate and socialize with the locals, but when it comes to friendship, you would not be able to express yourself as you express in your hometown. So from the perspective of a local, you would not look as funny as you really are, and as friendly as you used to be. After a while, you would used to your new characteristics, unless you try to delve deeper in the language and find ways to convey what you have in your mind. It is very typical that someone is hilarious in his native language, but becomes more serious in a non-native environment.

So a recommendation would be not to judge foreigners or you would never have a chance to know their reals.
