Gum-Chewing

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 that 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!”
