A teacher in a rather backward, rural area attempted to
broaden the outlook of her class. She asked the students
to write an essay on his views of foreigners. All turned
in more or less acceptable pieces except for little Billy,
whose essay, in full, was "All foreigners are bastards."
The shocked teacher made no direct comment but devoted her
next lecture to a description of Greek architecture, Roman
law, English drama, German music, Italian poetry, Russian
novels, Chinese philosophy and African sculpture. She then
asked the class to write another essay on foreigners.
When she finally got little Billy's paper it said, in full,
"All foreigners are bastards. Some are clever bastards."
