Bruce.

Mohammed entered his classroom.

"What is your name?" asked the teacher.

"Mohammed".... answered the kid.

"We are in Australia and, there is no Mohammed. From now on your name will be Bruce," replied the teacher.

In the evening, Mohammed returned home. "How was your day, Mohammed?" asked his mother.

"My name is not Mohammed, I am in Australia and now my name is Bruce."

"Ah, are you ashamed of your name, are you trying to disown your parents, your heritage, your religion? Shame on you," and she beat him.

Then she called the father and he too beat him savagely.

The next day Mohammed returned to school. When the teacher

saw him with all the bruises she asked:

"What happened to you little Bruce?"

"Well, Miss, 2 hours after becoming Australian I was attacked by two fuckin’ Arabs.

  2. Haha. The funny thing is, I have a pair of Australian relatives (distant ones, I stress) where the husband is called ‘Bruce’ and the wife is called ‘Sheila’. It took some time before I was convinced it wasn’t a joke.

  3. In a few months ago i was going through a checkout, the dude was um foreign, but his name tag said "Hi my name is Jack" The operator id above the register was "Satbeer" and that was the operators name on the docket as well. My thought was the supermarket chain required him to put a "good" name on his tag, but for official purposes needed him to put his real name on the register. His line was a lot shorter as well. like 1 person to about 5 on all others. What i have found is that the lines that are not serviced by "White" or "Asian" operators are shorter. Especially if its one of a couple of specific ethnicity males.
    So i personally am glad everybody is subconsciously racist, i get to do my shopping quicker.
    (i was going to throw some of this story in late on tuesdays blunty, but decided against it.)

  6. Yes, but only Lermontov is able to spend 30 seconds at a checkout, get her number, and have her naked 6 hours later. Or 30 minutes, if she's on break.

    I was given an extremely German first name, which is a family name, and a normal middle name that I could use in school so as not to get my ass kicked on a daily basis. It worked until 4th grade when I was ordered by the teacher to put my first name down on a standardized test form.
