White meat or dark Charlie Joseph CharlieJ cajoseph@us.hsanet.net Winston Churchill was visiting another country. The first evening there, at the state dinner, he pointed to the chicken
entree and said, "May I have some breast?"

The hostess raised her eyebrows and curtly responded, "Mr. Churchill, in this country we ask for white meat or dark meat."

"My apologies, Madam, I was not aware of your customs."

The following day, a "thank you" gift was delivered to the party's hostess of a large orchid. The following was written on the note: "I would be obliged if you would pin this on your white meat -- W. Churchill"
