Tuesday laughs

Another one:

The train was packed, and a U. S. Marine walked its entire length looking for a seat, but a well-dressed, middle-aged, French woman's poodle took the only seat remaining. The 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 that dog.

"Please, ma'am. May I sit down? I'm very tired," he beseeched.

She snorted, "Not only are you Americans rude, you are also arrogant!"

This time, the Marine didn't say a word; he simply picked up the little dog, tossed it out the train window, and sat down.

The woman went hysterical, shrieking, "Someone must defend my honor! Put this American in his place!"

An English gentleman sitting across the aisle spoke up, "Sir, you Americans seem to have a penchant for doing the wrong thing: you hold the fork in the wrong hand; you drive your vehicles on the wrong side of the road; you pronounce the names of countries you invade the wrong way..."

"And now, my good sir, you threw the wrong bitch out the window."
