That sly, funny man! 😄

During a visit to America, Winston Churchill was invited to a buffet luncheon at which cold fried chicken was served. Returning for a second helping, he asked politely, “May I have some breast?”

“Mr. Churchill,” replied the hostess, “in this country we ask for white meat or dark meat.”

Churchill apologized profusely.

The following morning, the lady received a magnificent orchid from her guest of honour. The accompanying card read: “I would be most obliged if you would pin this on your white meat.”
