Fifi and the US Marine
Joke of the Day
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 that dog. "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 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 bitch out the window."
