The teacher asked her 5th grade class, "Who said, 'Give me liberty or give me death!'?"
No one raised his hand except little Suzuki, who answered, "Patrick Henry, 1775."
"Very good!" she said. "Who said, 'Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the Earth'?"
Again, no response, except from Suzuki who answered, "Abraham Lincoln in the Gettysburg Address, 1863."
The teacher said, "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."
One student in the back blurted out, "I'm gonna puke."
Again, Suzuki answers, "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 shit. 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. As the class gathered around the teacher on the floor, someone said, "Oh, shit; we're in BIG trouble!"
Suzuki solemnly said, "Arthur Andersen to Enron, 2002."
