    An American tourist in London decides to skip his tour group and
    explore
    the city on his own. He wanders around, seeing the sights, and
    occasionally
    stopping at a quaint pub to soak up the local culture, chat with the
    lads, and have a pint of Guinness.

    After a while, he finds himself in a very high class
    neighborhood.....big,
    stately residences...no pubs, no stores, no restaurants, and worst of
    all... NO PUBLIC RESTROOMS. He really, really has to go, after all
    those
    Guinness's. He finds a narrow side street, with high walls
    surrounding
    the
    adjacent buildings and decides to use the wall to solve his problem.

    As he is unzipping, he is tapped on the shoulder by a London Bobbie,
    who
    says, "I say, sir, you simply cannot do that here, you know."

    "I'm very sorry, officer," replies the American, "but I really,
    really HAVE TO GO, and I just can't find a public restroom."

    "Ah, yes," said the Bobbie..."Just follow me."

    He leads him to a back delivery alley", then along a wall to a gate,
    which he opens. "In there," points the Bobbie. "Whiz away,...anywhere
    you
    want."

    The fellow enters and finds himself in the most beautiful garden he
    has
    ever seen. Manicured grass lawns, statuary, fountains, sculptured
    hedges,
    and
    huge beds of gorgeous flowers, all in perfect bloom. Since he has the
    cop's blessing, he unburdens himself and is greatly relieved.

    As he goes back thru the gate, he says to the Bobbie "That was really
    decent
    of you ...is that "British Hospitality?"

    "No" replied the Bobbie, with a satisfied smile on his face, "that is
    the
    French Embassy."
