It was the first day of school and a new student named
> Suzuki, the son of a Japanese businessman, 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 Suzuki, who had his hand up.
>
> "Patrick Henry, 1775." He said.
>
> "Very good! Who said 'Government of the people, by
> the people, for the people, shall not perish from the
> earth'"? Again, no response except from Suzuki:
>
> "Abraham Lincoln, 1863.", said Suzuki
>
> The teacher snapped at the class, "Class, you should be
> ashamed. Suzuki, who is new to our country, knows more
> about its history than you do."
>
> She heard a loud whisper: "Screw the Japs."
>
> "Who said that?" she demanded.
>
> Suzuki put his hand up. "Lee Iacocca, 1982."
>
> At that point, a student in the back said, "I'm gonna
> puke."
>
> The teacher glares and asks "All right! Now, who said
> that?"
>
> Again, Suzuki says, "George Bush to the Japanese Prime
> Minister, 1991."
>
> Now furious, another student yells, "Oh yeah? Suck
> this!"
>
> Suzuki jumps out of his chair waving his hand and shouts
> to the teacher,
>
> "Bill Clinton, to Monica Lewinsky, 1997!"
>
> Now with almost a mob hysteria someone said, "You little
> twerp! If you say anything else, I'll kill you."
>
> Suzuki 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 boy, we're
> in BIG trouble!
>
> ...and Suzuki said, "The Taliban! 2001."
