- Found on a genealogy list:
>A man emigrating from Ireland landed at Ellis Island in New York.:-)
>The official asked him his nationality. He replied, "Scottish."
>The officer seemed confused and said, "But your papers say you were
>born in Ireland."
>The proud immigrant squared his shoulders and explained. "If a man
>is born in a barn, that doesn't make him a horse."
>He entered his new homeland as a Scotsman.
