Breeding’s everything

A woman from Chicago attended a party in New York where the hostess was determined to make her mid-west guest feel cheap and unimportant.

“My dear,” said the New York matron snobbishly, “here in the east we think breeding is everything.”

“Oh I don't know.” said the Chicago woman. “Where I come from we think it's fun, too, but we try to have a few outside interests as well.”
