Two immigrants arrive in America, and on their first day off the boat they wander around New York City, to see the sights that Manhattan has to offer.
They are amazed at everything they see, from the Empire State Building to Grand Central Station, and the myriad flashing lights and advertisements in TIme Square just blew them away.
Before they knew it, lunch time approached , and they realized that they were really hungry.
They came up to a street vendor selling hot dogs, and wanting to try and live like Americans, they thought that they ought to try them.
One immigrant says to the other in a shocked tone, “My God. Do they eat dogs in America?”
“I don’t know!” says the other, equally appalled.
They were rather dubious at the thought of eating hot dogs, but they were also pretty hungry by this time.
“Well,” says the first, “we are going to be Americans, so we must do as they do.”
They approach the vendor bravely. “Two hot dogs, please.”
The vendor hands them their food in a pair of paper sacks.
The two immigrants then walk over to sit on a park bench nearby to eat their lunch.
One looks inside his sack, hesitates and turns to his partner and says, “Uh, which part of the dog did you get?”
