It was the first day of school and a new student from India entered the fourth grade.

The teacher said, "Let's begin by reviewing some American History.Who said, "Give me Liberty, or give me Death"? She saw a sea of blank faces, except for Indian, who had his hand up: "Patrick Henry, 1775" he said.

"Very good!" Who said, "Government of the People, by thePeople, for the People, shall not perish from the Earth?" Again, no response except from Indian. "Abraham Lincoln, 1863" said Indian.

The teacher snapped at the class, "you should be ashamed. Indian, who is new to our country, knows moreabout its history than you do."

She heard a loud whisper: "F**k the Indians," "Who said that?" she demanded. Indian put his hand up. "General Custer, 1862."

At that point, a student in the back said, "I'm gonna puke." The teacher glares around and asks "All right! Now, who said that?" Again, Indian says, "George Bush to the Japanese Prime Minister, 1991."

Now furious, another student yells, "Oh yeah? S*ck this!" Indian jumps out of his chair waving his hand and shouts to the teacher, "Bill Clinton, to Monica Lewinsky, 1997!"

Now with almost mob hysteria someone said, "You little shit. If you say anything else, I'll kill you." Indian frantically yells at the top of his voice, "Gary Condit to Chandra Levy, 2001."

The teacher fainted. And as the class gathered around the teacher on the floor, someone said, "Oh shit, we're f**ked!" and Indian said quietly, "George Bush, Iraq, 2005."
