In the original book "Urban Legends," Burnvand notes that instead of saying "once upon a time" we now often start our tall tales with "I read in the newspaper."

For what it's worth, I've personally witnessed virtually the exact same exchange played out between a southern "Good 'Ol Boy" and a young Cherokee man whom he mistook for an Arab. So even if this one anecdote is an urban legend, it still rings soundly true to life.

I simply cannot fathom what would drive someone to get angry at another person merely for speaking a different language. The only thing I can think of that makes any sense is that they must be incredibly insecure and fearful of others.
