A Joke About the English

What’s one joke that best describes the English (and by extension, the British)?

For me it’s this rather ancient American joke:

An Englishman in a locked compartment on a train without a toilet asks his American seat-companion’s permission to relieve himself on a spread newspaper, which he then folds up and flings out the window.

The American, who cannot avoid watching the entire procedure, lights up a long black cigar to cover some of the fecal odor.

“I say!” says the Englishman, “you know, this isn’t a smoking compartment!”

I personally think this is funny and it sounds almost like a true story.

And this is what the English are really like — they have been crapping all over the world without rhyme or reason almost in an exact same fashion but are always raising a huge stink whenever anybody is trying to complain (or at least not to watch or smell whatever they are up to).
