    Default Leave it to the Brits

    British Humour

    An American tourist in London decides to skip his tour group and
    explore the city on his own. He wanders around, seeing the sights, and
    occasionally stopping at a quaint pub to soak up the local culture,
    chat with the lads, and have a pint of Guinness.
    After a while, he finds himself in a very high class neighborhood -
    big, stately residences, no pubs, no stores, no restaurants, and worst
    of all ...NO PUBLIC TOILETS!
    He really, really had to go, after all those Guinnesses. He finally
    finds a narrow side street, with high walls surrounding the adjacent
    buildings and decides to use the wall to solve his problem.
    As he is unzipping, he is tapped on the shoulder by a London Bobby,
    who says, "I say, sir, you simply cannot do that here, you know."
    "I'm very sorry, officer," replies the American, "but I really, really
    HAVE TO GO, and I just can't find a public toilet."
    "Ah, yes," said the Bobbie . "Just follow me". He leads him to a back
    "delivery alley", then along a wall to a gate, which he opens. "In
    there," points the Bobbie. "Whiz away, sir, anywhere you want."
    The fellow enters and finds himself in the most beautiful garden he
    has ever seen. Manicured grass lawns, statuary, fountains, sculptured
    hedges, and huge beds of gorgeous flowers, all in perfect bloom. Since
    he has the cop's blessing, he unburdens himself and is greatly
    relieved.
    As he goes back through the gate, he says to the Bobby, "That was
    really decent of you ... is that what you call "British hospitality?"
    "No sir," the Bobby replied. "It's what we call 'The French Embassy'."

    Given the Guinness references, and the fact that the Irish are a little sore
    at the French right now over the World Cup...I think that somewhere along
    the lines, London & British has been swapped in for Dublin & Irish...?
