In a train from London to Manchester an 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 Italian blood, Greek blood, a little Irish blood and some Spanish blood.
What do you say to that?"
The Englishman lowered his newspaper and replied,
"How very sporting of your mother!"
