Day Brightener – The Last Word

In a train from London to Manchester, a somewhat oafish American was berating the Englishman sitting across from him in the compartment.

“The trouble with you English is that you are too stuffy. You set yourselves apart too much. You think your stiff upper lip makes you
above the rest of us.

Look at me… I’m me! I have a little Italian in me, a bit of Greek blood, a little Irish and some Spanish blood.

What do you say to that?”

The Englishman slowly lowered his newspaper, looked over his glasses and replied,

“How terribly sporting of your mother”.
