14. I've always considered myself a mongrel.
Mongrel dogs are always more attractive and intelligent!
When asked what my ethnicity is, I've always said I'm a typical American Mutt.
I don't have any African in me, but I'm the usual mix of Scots-Irish, German, Dutch and Cherokee.
Unfortunately, someone is going to turn his statement into an outrage.
In 5...4..3...2...1...
