The funniest segment is definitely when the kids in class answer the question about their heritage. The Asian kid talks about the ancient culture and inventions, then the African-American talks about farming methods and other contributions. A Jewish boy wisecracks in New york accent "Since you are all familiar with the Old Testament, I'll spare you the ancient history." or something to that effect and outlines how his family established a business (dry cleaning?) and made lots of money.

I was in college, and I had just moved from an apartment on Elm Street to another place on Maple Ave. And yeah, I'm white!
