A man in Memphis goes to the top of a building and threatens to jump off.
A police negotiater is sent up to try and talk him down.
The negotiater says,"In the name of your wife and family, you should come down."
The man says,"I have no wife and family."
The negotiater tries another tack. "Then in the name of your church, you should come down."
"I have no church."
The negotiater sighs and tries a final gambit. "In the name of Robert E. Lee, you should come down."
"Who is Robert E. Lee?"
Incensed, the negotiater tells him,"Jump, you damned Yankee! Jump!"
