A bloke who was well known for his anti Italian sentiments, was walking down the street one day with a mate, when they came across a busking act, an Italian with an organ grinding monkey. Our incipient racist stunned his friend by throwing a couple of bucks into the hat.
"I thought you hated Italians?" was the comment as the friend recovered.
" Yeh, I do. But even I'll admit they're cute when they're little."
