Countrymen

President Andrew Jackson was once approached by the attractive niece of a certain British minister. "You and General Washington enjoy a unique fame," she declared. "No one else has ever defeated my countrymen." "That, my dear," Jackson replied, "is because we are both descended from your countrywomen."

[In order to ensure that the White House had a steady supply of running water, Jackson installed two fire hydrants on its second floor.]
