Subject: Fifi and the marine

The train was quite crowded, so the 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 that 

"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! Put this American 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 autos on the wrong side of the road. And now, sir, you've thrown 
the wrong bitch out the window!"
