It was the Scotland/Ireland rugby International weekend in Edinburgh and
as the crowds made their way down Princes Street towards Murrayfield,
a Rottweiler suddenly lunged towards an eight year old Scottish lass,
with its jaws wide open ready to attack.
The crowd nearby gasped in horror but, quick as a flash, a man in green
jumped out of the crowd, grabbed the dog by the throat and throttled
As the dead dog lay there, and the crowd cheered in admiration, a
journalist from the Glasgow Herald who had witnessed the heroic
deed, went up to the man and said, 'That was brilliant, I can see the
headline now -
'Irish Rugby Fan Saves Young Girl From Certain Death'.
The man replied, 'No you've got it wrong. I'm not here for the rugby!'
'Don't worry' said the journalist, 'I can see the headline now �
'Irish hero Saves Girl From Jaws Of Rottweiler'.
The man replied, 'No you're wrong again. I'm not Irish; I'm from London .'
The journalist said, 'Don't worry; I can see the headline now
'English ******* Strangles Family Pet'..
