London.<br><br><br><br>
The train was very crowded, so the soldier walked the length of the<br><br>
train, looking for an empty seat. The only unoccupied seat was directly<br><br>
adjacent to a well-dressed middle-aged French lady and was being used by<br><br>
her little dog. The war weary soldier asked, "Please, ma'am, may I sit in<br><br>
that seat?" The French woman looked down her nose at the soldier, sniffed<br><br>
and<br><br>
said, "You Americans. You are such a rude class of people. Can't you see<br><br>
my Little Fifi is using that seat?"<br><br>
The soldier walked away, determined to find a place to rest, but after<br><br>
another trip down to the end of the train, found himself again facing the<br><br>
woman with the dog. Again he asked, "Please, lady. May I sit there? I'm<br><br>
very tired."<br><br>
The French woman wrinkled her nose and snorted, "You Americans! Not only<br><br>
are you rude, you are also arrogant. Imagine!" The soldier didn't say<br><br>
anything else; he leaned over, picked up the little dog, tossed it out<br><br>
the window of the train and sat down in the empty seat.<br><br>
The woman shrieked and railed, and demanded that someone defend her and<br><br>
chastise the soldier.<br><br>
An English gentleman sitting across the aisle spoke up, "You know, sir,<br><br>
you<br><br>
Americans do seem to have a penchant for doing the wrong thing. You eat<br><br>
holding the fork in the wrong hand. You drive your autos on the wrong<br><br>
side of the road. And now, sir, you've thrown the wrong ***** out the<br><br>
window."

I say pictures of world championship sky diving after the WTC and I think this goes in the same category.<br><br><br><br>
Never the less it made me smile. I like the deeper message of it.<br><br><br><br>
-\tIts in London: he cant kick ass in his own country<br><br>
-\tHe cant discuss a problem in a decent way<br><br>
-\tHe attacks the wrong target in a cruel way<br><br>
-\tThe English man doesnt understand whats happening.<br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">
