On a business trip in Mexico, three men get drunk and wake up in jail to
learn they will be executed, although none of them can recall what they
did to deserve it.

The first man put in the electric chair is asked for his last words.
"I'm from Yale Divinity School, and believe in the power of God to intervene
on behalf of the innocent."

The switch is thrown, but nothing happens. The jailers figure God wants
the man alive and they let him go.

The second man is strapped in. "I'm from Harvard Law School, and believe
in the power of justice to intervene on behalf of the innocent."

The switch is thrown; again, nothing. The jailers think the law is on this
man's side, so they let him go.

The last man says, "Well, I'm an electrical engineer from MIT, and you're
not electrocuting anybody if you don't connect those two loose wires
down there."

What did the fish say? You wouldn't be using a derogatory slur here, would you? Perhaps you meant an American, a Frenchman (or Frog) and a Pole? Dictionaries are those big books full of words:


Main Entry: pol·lack
Variant(s): or pol·lock /'pä-l&k/
Function: noun
Inflected Form(s): plural pollack or pollock
Etymology: Middle English poullok, perhaps from Scottish Gaelic pollag or Irish pollóg
Date: 15th century
1 : a commercially important north Atlantic food fish (Pollachius virens) related to and resembling the cods but darker
2 : a commercially important northern Pacific food fish (Theragra chalcogramma) of the cod family that closely resembles the pollack -- called also walleye pollack
