This is a repost from another site I frequent. I laughed when I was at my desk at this so had to share it.
"Working For A Canadian Telecoms Company
We had a global video-conference call with the Asia/Pacific team (all Ozzies), the Europeans (my team) and the Americas (all Yanks). We were doing the introductions when the boss introduced me.
"And this is Legless. He's from the North-East, near the Scottish border"
One of the Yanks chimed in:
"Scotland? I love Scotch whiskey! Could you bring me a couple of bottles over when you're next over here?"
"No problem" I said "But is it OK if I filter it through my kidneys first?"
Europeans and Ozzies cracked up. Americans look confused.
"Yeah - that would be fine. Just as long as it gets here."
