Streeter: 514 edition– ancien joke, new génération

Overheard on the 211 bus, Montreal, highway 20, direction Ouest.
Sandy-haired teen: At the last Just For Laughs, this comic told this joke. He said:
     “I travel in America and people ask me, ‘what’s the story with Toronto and Montreal?’ So I tell them, it’s like you have two brothers. One is an accountant. The other is a womanizing alcoholic.”
     And before he gets to the end of the sentence, the crowd starts cheering, so he tells them “Well I guess we know which one you are.”
     He swears he tells the same joke the same way and gets exactly the same reaction in Toronto.
Red-hoodied teen: Why? People in Toronto think they’re the womanizing alcoholic too?
Sandy-haired teen: No. Toronto knows it’s the accountant. And it’s really proud it’s not the womanizing alcoholic.
