A Traveling Marine . . . .

On a crowded train, traveling somewhere in 
Europe, a U.S. Marine walked the entire length 
of the train looking for a seat before realizing that 
the only seat available was currently occupied by 
a well-dressed, middle-aged French woman's poodle.
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 length of the train 
again, and discovered that the only seat available 
was in fact the onecurrently being occupied by 
the poodle.

Trudging tiredly back, the marine arrived once 
more before the French woman and said, "Please 
Ma'am, may I sit down? I'm very tired?"

She snorted, "Not only are you Americans rude, 
you are also arrogant. Why should I care if you 
are tired?" This time, the Marine didn't say a word, 
but simply picked up he little dog, tossed it out the 
train window, then sat down. The woman shrieked, 
"Someone, defend my honour! This American
needs to be put 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 your fork in the 
wrong hand, and 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."

Thanks Hal

Not bad.

QUESTION: what is the difference between a Frenchman and a huge, stinking fetid stench ridden pile of vulture puke?

ANSWER: the huge, stinking fetid stench ridden pile of vulture puke is less offensive.
