My mom sent this to me. She used to send me EVERYTHING. We had a little chat about this. She’s gotten really good at sending me the best of what she gets. I’m proud of mom – respectful of the computer but not afraid to try new things (like Facebook). I’ve edited it a bit to make it….um….shall we say….a bit more politically correct.
A man, 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 small stand selling ties.
The man asked, ‘Do you have water?‘
The shop owner replied, ‘I have no water. Would you like to buy a tie? They are only $5.‘
The man shouted, ‘Idiot! I do not need an over-priced tie. I need water! I should kill you, but I must find water first!”
‘ OK,’ said the shop owner, ‘it does not matter that you do not want to buy a tie and that you hate me. I will show you that I am bigger than that. If you continue over that hill to the east for about two miles, you will find a lovely restaurant. It has all the ice cold water you need.’
Muttering, the man staggered away over the hill. Several hours later he staggered back, almost dead.
‘Your @#$% brother won’t let me in without a tie!‘
