A Somali arrives in Glasgow as a new immigrant to Scotland . He stops the first person he sees walking down the street and says ... 'Thank you Mr. Scotsman for letting me in this country, giving me housing, money for food, free medical care, free education and no taxes!'
The passerby says, 'You are mistaken, I am Pakistani.'
The man goes on and encounters another passerby. ' Thank you for having such a beautiful country here in Scotland !' The person says, 'I not Scottish, I Vietnamese.'
The new arrival walks further, and the next person he sees he stops, shakes his hand and says, 'Thank you for the wonderful Scotland !' That person puts up his hand and says, 'I am from Middle East , I am not Scottish !'
He finally sees a nice lady and asks, 'Are you a Scots ?' She says , 'No, I am from Africa !'
Puzzled, he asks her, 'Where are all the Scottish people ?'
The African lady checks her watch and says ...'Probably at work'
(Or signing on at the dole office, depending on which part of Glasgow you're in).
