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!
