ETHNIC JOKE

AN IRISH PRIEST WAS TEACHING AT AN INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL.
HE ASKED THE KIDS TO NAME THE ONE MAN WHO CONTRIBUTED THE MOST
TO THE WORLD. A SMALL SPANISH BOY SAID, "CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS."
THE PRIEST SAID, "THAT'S VERY GOOD, BUT NOT WHO I HAD IN MIND."
NEXT A FRENCH BOY SAID, "CHARLES DEGAULLE." THE PRIEST SAID, "THAT'S
VERY GOOD, BUT NOT WHO I HAD IN MIND." THEN HE OFFERED A
DOLLAR TO WHOEVER COULD GET THE RIGHT ANSWER. AFTER SEVERAL
ANSWERS, A LITTLE JEWISH BOY SAID, "SAINT PATRICK." THE PRIEST
SAID, "EXCELLENT. HOW DID YOU KNOW?" THE LITTLE JEWISH BOY SAID,
"WELL, I WANTED TO SAY MOSES, BUT BUSINESS IS BUSINESS."
