When alcohol supersedes history and geography!

Dave Renneberg, the former Australian fast bowler, who last played a Test match against the Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi-led Indian side in 1968, is sitting in a bar and having a drink with friends. The group is suddenly joined by a Chinese known to one of the men in the group.

As the group is few pegs down, Renneberg suddenly slaps the Chinese.

The Chinese is livid.

 

Chinese: Why did you slap me?

 

Renneberg: Because you bombed Pearl Harbor! I lost a close family member in that bombing.

 

Chinese: But I am Chinese, not Japanese.

 

Renneberg: You fool, Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, Taiwanese, you are all the same.

 

The Chinese flies into a rage on hearing that and punches Renneberg.

 

Renneberg: Why did you punch me?

 

Chinese: For sinking the Titanic.

 

Renneberg: But Titanic was sunk by an iceberg, stupid!

 

Chinese: Iceberg, Carlsberg, Renneberg, you are all the same!
