The Jewish Tie Salesman
A fleeing Taliban terrorist, desperate for water, was
plodding through the Afghan desert when he saw something
far off in the distance.
Hoping to find water, he hurried toward the mirage,
only to find a very frail little old Jewish man standing
at a small makeshift display rack - selling ties.
The Taliban terrorist asked, "Do you have water?"
The Jewish man replied, "I have no water. Would you
like to buy a tie? They are only $5."
The Taliban shouted hysterically, "Idiot Infidel! I
do not need such an over-priced western adornment - I
spit on your ties. I need water!!!!
"Sorry, I have none - just ties - pure silk - and only
"Pahh! A curse on your ties, I should wrap one around
your scrawny little neck and choke the life out of you,
but I must conserve my energy and find water!"
"Okay," said the little old Jewish man, it does not
matter that you do not want to buy a tie from me, or
that you hate me, threaten my life, and call me infidel.
I will show you that I am bigger than any of that. If
you continue over that hill to the east for about two
miles, you will find a restaurant. It has the finest food
and all the ice-cold water you need. Go in peace."
Cursing him again, the desperate Taliban staggered
away over the hill.
Several hours later he crawled back, almost dead and
gasped, "They won't let me in without a tie.
