    For all you "French lovers"

    Subject: The tourist & the London policeman

    An American tourist in London decides to skip his tour group and explore the city on his own. He wanders around, seeing the sights, and stopping at quaint pubs to soak up the local culture, chat with the lads, and have a pint of Guinness.

    After a while, he finds himself in a very high class neighbourhood.....big, stately residences... no pubs, no restaurants, and worst of all... NO TOILETS.

    He really, really has to go, after all those Guinnesses. He finds a dark, little narrow side street, with high walls around the buildings and decides to pee against the wall.

    As he is unzipping, he is tapped on the shoulder by a London bobby, who says, "I say, sir, you simply cannot do that here, you know."

    "I'm very sorry, officer," replies the American, "but I really, really HAVE TO GO, and I just can't find a public restroom."

    "Ah, yes," said the bobby..."Just follow me". He leads him to a "delivery alley", then along a wall to a gate, which he opens.

    "In there," points the bobby. "Whiz away sir, anywhere you want."

    The fellow enters and finds himself in the most beautiful garden he has ever seen - manicured lawns, statuary, fountains, sculpted hedges, and huge beds of gorgeous flowers, all in perfect bloom.

    Since he has the cop's blessing, he unburdens himself and is greatly relieved.

    As he goes back through the gate, he says to the bobby "That was really decent of you... is that what you call "English Hospitality?"

    "No sir" replies the bobby, "that is what we call the French Embassy."
