A member of an ethnic group reputed to have a stingy reputation and a
member of an ethnic group often stereotyped as having a miserly cunning
went to a restaurant. After a hearty meal, the table waiting attendant came
by with the inevitable bill. To the amazement of all, the member of the
ethnic group reputed to have a stingy reputation was heard to say,
"I'll pay it," which he actually did.
The next morning's newspaper carried the news item:
"VENTRILOQUIST FROM ETHNIC GROUP OFTEN STEREOTYPED AS HAVING A
MISERLY CUNNING FOUND SEVERELY CHASTISED IN BLIND ALLEY."
