The Marine And The French Poodle

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, threw it out of the train window, and sat down. The woman shrieked, ‘Someone must defend my honour! This American should be put 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 cars on the wrong side of the road. And now, sir, you seem to have thrown the wrong bitch out of the window.’

  1. How funny–sending to Marine son-in-law. Having learned the Marine way from this fine young family member, I can assure you the above Marine never changed his expression.

  2. Being French I don’t think it is that funny…SInce September 11th 2001, the villains in films are French; I wonder why…
