    Talking A Irishman, a Frenchman, and an American...

    A Irishman, a Frenchman, and an American are in
    Saudi Arabia, sharing a
    smuggled crate of booze when Saudi police rush in
    and arrest them. The
    mere possession of alcohol is a severe offense in
    Saudi Arabia, so for the
    terrible crime of actually being caught consuming
    the booze, they are all
    to death! However, after many months and with the
    help of very good
    lawyers, they are able to successfully appeal their
    sentences down to life

    By a stroke of luck, it was a Saudi national holiday
    the day their trial
    finished, and the extremely benevolent Sheikh
    decided they could be released
    receiving just 20 lashes each of the whip. As they
    were preparing for their
    punishment, the Sheikh announced: "It's my first
    wife's birthday today, and
    she has asked me to allow each of you one wish
    before your whipping."

    The Irishman was first in line, he thought for a
    while and then said,
    "Please tie a pillow to my back." This was done, but
    the pillow only lasted
    10 lashes
    before the whip went through. When the punishment
    was done he had to be
    carried away bleeding and crying with pain.

    The Frenchman was next up. After watching the
    Irishman in horror he said
    smugly, "Please fix two pillows to my back." But
    even two pillows could only
    15 lashes before the whip went through again and the
    Frenchman was soon led
    away whimpering loudly (as they do).

    The American was the last one up, but before he
    could say anything, the
    Sheikh turned to him and said, "You are from a most
    beautiful part of the
    and your culture is one of the finest in the world.
    For this, you may have
    two wishes!"

    "Thank you, your Most Royal and Merciful highness",
    the American replied.
    "In recognition of your kindness, my first wish is
    that you give me not 20,
    100 lashes."

    "Not only are you an honorable, handsome and
    powerful man, you are also very
    brave," the Sheikh said with an admiring look on his
    face. "If 100 lashes is
    what you desire, then so be it. "And your second
    wish, what is it to be?"
    the Sheikh asked.
    The American replied: "Tie the Frenchman to my
