Ooh, I can tell my joke again!

I was in Zurich talking to an American guy, and he said "I still haven't got used to these windy European streets". So I asked where he was from, and he said "Chicago". So I said, "But I thought Chicago was the Windy City."

I was quite pleased with myself for that one.
