A gum-chewing American and a Frenchman are sitting together in a
restaurant. The American feel really proud to be an American, so he
starts a conversation.
He asks the Frenchman, "When you eat bread, do you eat all of it?"
"Mais oui!, of course!" responds the Frenchman.
"Well," says the American, "we only eat the soft part of it. The rest we
collect in containers, take to a factory and put through a mill. What
comes out are little breads that we sell in France.
"And what about steaks?" he continues. "Do you eat all parts of them?"
"Bien sur! We do," replies the Frenchman.
"You don`t say!" says the America, grinning. "We don`t! We only eat the
meaty part of the steak. The greasy part we collect in containers, take
to a factory, put through a mill, and what comes out are little steaks =
we sell in France."
Now the Frenchman is really riled. So he asks, "And what do Americans
do with their used condoms?"
"Hey, we throw them away of course," says the American.
"Ha!" exclaims the Frenchman. "We collect them in containers, take them
to a factory and put them through a mill. What comes out is chewing gum
that we sell in America!"
