"If it has four legs and is not a chair, if it has two wings and flies and is not an aeroplane, and if it swims and is not a submarine, the Cantonese will eat it." -Prince Philip

"It's not funny!" England snapped, stirring his tea violently as America giggled. "He made me apologise in Chinese, seven times before he was satisfied with my pronunciation. I don't know why he blames me."

"Aw, lighten up, old man!" said America. "We've all dealt with dumb politicians before. You should hear what Bush used to come out with."

To England's great embarrassment, China brought the tea into the living room just in time to hear him say "Philip might have a point. Have you ever seen him cook?"

England jumped as China said flatly "You're sleeping on the couch tonight."

(The saying in question is allegedly actually used by other Chinese groups to refer to the Cantonese. I think China-the-character would still be annoyed at a Westerner saying it.)
