A fleeing Taliban murderer, desperate for water, was trudging through
the Afghanistan desert when he saw something far off in the distance.
Hoping to find water, he hurried towards it, only to find a little old
Jewish man at a small stand selling colorful neckties.
The Taliban asked, "Do you have any water?"
The Jewish man replied, "I have no water. Would you like to buy a nice
tie? They are only $5."
The Taliban shouted, "Infidel! I do not need an over-priced tie! I
should kill you, but I must find water first!"
"OK, OK," said the old Jewish man. "It does not matter that you do not
want to buy a tie and that you hate me. I will show you that I am
bigger than that. If you continue over that hill to the east for about
two miles, you will find a lovely restaurant. It has all the ice cold
water you need. Shalom!"
Muttering, the Taliban staggered away over the hill.
Several hours later he staggered back, almost dead. "Your @#$%&$*
brother won't let me in without a tie!"
