??? A Frenchman, an Englishmanand a New Yorker were exploring the jungle and were captured by a fierce tribe. As they sit in a hut, awaiting their fate, the chief comes to them and says,"The bad news is that now that we've caught you, we're going to kill you, and thenuse your skins to build a canoe. The good news is that you get to choose how youdie."
??? The Frenchman says, "Itake ze poison." The chief gives him some poison, the Frenchman says, "Vive laFrance!" and drinks it down.
??? The Englishman says,"A pistol for me, please." The chief gives him a pistol, he points it at hishead, says, "God save the queen!" and blows his brains out.
??? The New Yorker says,"Gimme a fork." The chief is puzzled, but he shrugs and gives him a fork. TheNew Yorker takes the fork and starts jabbing himself all over -- the stomach, the sides, thechest, everywhere.
??? There's blood gushing outall over, it's horrible. The chief is appalled, and screams, "What are youdoing???"
??? The New Yorker looks at thechief and says, "So much for your canoe,? asshole!"
