It was the first day of school and a new student, the son of a Japanese
businessman, Toshiba, entered the fourth grade.

The teacher greeted the class and said, "Let's begin by reviewing some
American history. Who said 'Give me Liberty, or give me death?'" She saw
only a sea of blank faces, except for that of Toshiba, who had his hand up.

"Patrick Henry, 1775," said the boy.

"Now," said the teacher, "Who said 'Government of the people, by the
people, for the people shall not perish from the earth?" Again, no response
except from Toshiba: "Abraham Lincoln, 1863."

The teacher snapped at the class, "You should be ashamed. Toshiba, who
is new to our country, knows more about it than you do." As she turned to
write something on the blackboard, she heard a loud whisper: "Damned Japanese."

"Who said that?" she demanded. Toshiba put his hand up. "Lee Iacocca, 1982," he said.

At that point, feeling completely disgusted by Toshiba's classroom superiority, a
student in the back sighed, "I'm gonna throw up". Teacher says "who said that?".
Again, Toshiba raises his hand and says "George Bush to Japanese Prime Minister,1991".

Now furious, another student yells, "Oh yeah? well suck my ...." Once again, it's
Toshiba with the answer, "Bill Clinton, to Monica Lewinsky, 1997".
