Smile of the Day

Life is getting much too serious, yes? Who doesn't need a daily smile?




Tuesday, December 13

Context

When a visitor to Scotland came upon a wild dog attacking a young boy, he quickly grabbed the animal and throttled it with his two hands. A reporter happened to see the incident, congratulated the man, and told him the headline the following day would read, "Valiant Local Man Saves Child by Killing Vicious Animal".

The hero told the journalist that he was not from that town.

"Well, then," the reporter said, "the headline will probably say, 'Scotsman Saves Child by Killing Dog'."

"Actually," the man said, "I am from London."

"In that case," the reporter said, "the headline should read, 'Sassenach Kills Family Pet'."
