Present perfect (british humour)

There were four race horses in a stable one day. It was raining and they were bored so they started talking about their track records. One of them boasted,

 ‘I’ve been in eight races so far this year and I’ve won five of them’   

That’s nothing!’ interrupted the second race horse, I’ve run in twelve races since the beginning of this year and I’ve won seven of them.’

The third race horse broke in,    ‘Well, I’ve taken part in 15 races this year and I’ve won ten of them.’  

I’ve done better than any of you,’ claimed the fourth race horse. ‘So far this year I’ve been in 18 races and I’ve only lost four of them.’

At this point, they noticed that a small greyhound dog was sitting and listening to their conversation, wagging his tail.

I don’t want to brag,’ he said, ‘But I’ve been in forty five races this year up till now and I haven’t lost any of them!’

The horses were absolutely amazed.    ‘That’s just incredible! I’ve never heard anything like it!’ said one of them, after an impressed silence, ‘A talking dog!’

“Harry’s mouth fell open. The dishes in front of him were now piled with food. He had never seen so many things he liked to eat on one table: roast beef, roast chicken, pork chops and lamb chops, Yorkshire pudding, peas, carrots, gravy, ketchup and, for some strange reason, mint humbugs.”Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, J. K. Rowling
