Just after the war of 1812, an ambassador to England from the United States had been dispatched in order to maintain the peace with the English. The diplomat was invited to a formal dinner with many important members of the English Government as they discussed peace talks and opening diplomacy.

In the middle of the dinner, the diplomat excused himself to go to the outhouse. In the outhouse, he found a painting of George Washington hanging there.

Upon his return to the dinner, a few of the more impish guests remarked.

"So, how do you like that painting? And where it is hanging?"

"Oh I think it's wonderful! It's perfect!" The diplomat replied.

Obviously taken back by this, the pranksters fell silent as they all looked at the American.
