Overpriced tie
Thursday, January 15, 2009

A fleeing Taliban, desperate for water, was
plodding through the Afghanistan desert when he saw something far off
in the distance. Hoping to find water, he hurried toward the object
only to find a little old Jew at a small stand selling neckties.

The Taliban asked, 'Do you have water?' The Jew replied, 'I have no water. Would you like to buy a tie? They are only $5.00.

The Taliban shouted, 'Idiot! I do not need an overpriced tie. I need water! I should kill you, but I must find water first.'

'OK,' said the old Jew, 'it does not matter that you don't want to
buy a tie and that you hate me. I will show you that I am bigger than
that. If you continue over that hill to the east for about two miles,
you will find a lovely restaurant. It has all the ice cold water you
need. Shalom.'

Muttering, the Taliban staggered away over the hill.

Several hours later he staggered back.

'Your ******* brother won't let me in without a tie.'
