The train was quite crowded, so a U. S. Marine walked the entire
length looking for a seat, but the only seat left was taken by a well
dressed, middle-aged, French woman's poodle
The war-weary Marine asked, 'Ma'am, may I have that seat?'
The French woman just sniffed and said to no one in particular, 'Americans
are so rude. My little Fifi is using that seat.'
The Marine walked the entire train again, but the only seat left was under
'Please, ma'am. May I sit down? I'm very tired.'
She snorted, 'Not only are you Americans rude, you are also arrogant!'This
time the Marine didn't say a word; he just picked up the little dog, tossed
it out the train window, and sat down.
The woman shrieked, 'Someone must defend my honor! this American should be
put in his place!'
An English gentleman sitting nearby spoke up, 'Sir, you Americans often seem
to have a penchant for doing the wrong thing You hold the fork in the wrong
hand. You drive your cars on the wrong side of the road. And now, sir, you
Seem to have thrown the wrong bi3tch out the window.
