Two distinguished English gentlemen were driving to an appointment in a part of the country unknown to them.

After a while they realised that they were lost and decided to stop and ask the way.

As fate would have it, the first human being they saw was not very helpful. He had never heard of their destination nor of places they mentioned that might be adjacent to it.

Finally and unwisely, the man driving said in exasperation: “Well, thank you very much, but I can’t say you seem to know much.”

The yokel said: “Ah, but maybe I knows more than thee; thee be lost, but I knows where I be.”
