Russian Tourist

An Russian tourist in New-York found himself needing to get rid of a large supply of garbage from his recent stay at an apartment. After a long search, he just couldn’t find any place to discard of it. So, he just went down one of the side streets to dump it there.

Yet, he was stopped by a police officer, who said,

“Hey you, what are you doing?”

“I have to throw this away,” replied the tourist.

“You can’t throw it away here. Look, follow me,” the policeman offered.

The police officer led him to a beautiful garden with lots of grass, pretty flowers, and manicured hedges.

“Here,” said the cop, “dump all the garbage you want.”

The russian shrugs, opens up the large bags of garbage, and dumps them right on the flowers.

“Thanks for giving me a place to dump this stuff. This is very nice of you. Is this U.S.A courtesy?” asked the tourist.

“No. This is the Russian Embassy.”

  1. Good call, Björn ! Embassies are always located in the host country’s capital city! So it would be the Russian Consulate in NYC! But this error doesn’t change the meaning of the joke!
