A Japanese student in America
    2012-12-19  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

It was the first day of school and a new student, the son of a Japanese businessman, entered the fourth grade.

The teacher greeted the class and said: “Let’s begin by reviewing some American history. Who said ‘Give me liberty, or give me death?’”

She saw only a sea of blank faces, except for that of Toshiba, who had his hand up. “Patrick Henry, 1775,” said the boy.

“Now,” said the teacher, “who said ‘Government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth?’”

Again, no response except from Toshiba, “Abraham Lincoln, 1863.”

The teacher snapped at the class: “You should be ashamed. Toshiba, who is new to our country, knows more about it than you do.”

As she turned to write something on the blackboard, she heard a loud whisper: “Damned Japanese.”

“Who said that?” she demanded.

Toshiba put his hand up. “Lee Iacocca, 1982,” he said.

At that point, feeling completely disgusted by Toshiba’s classroom superiority, a student in the back sighed, “I’m gonna throw up.”

Teacher asked, “Who said that?”

Again, Toshiba raised his hand and said, “George Bush to the Japanese prime minister, 1991.”

Best restaurant

There were three restaurants on the same block. One day one of them put up a sign which said “The Best Restaurant in Town.”

The next day, the largest restaurant on the block put up a larger sign which said “The Best Restaurant in the World.”

On the third day, the smallest restaurant put up a small sign which said “The Best Restaurant on this Block.”(SD-Agencies)
