The Cat's Saucer

  President Calvin Coolidge once invited friends from his
  hometown to dine at the White House. Worried about their
  table manners, the guests decided to do everything that
  Coolidge did. This strategy succeeded, until coffee was
  served. The president poured his coffee into the saucer. The
  guests did the same. Coolidge added sugar and cream. His
  guests did, too. Then Coolidge bent over and put his saucer
  on the floor for the cat.
