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
sentenced
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
imprisonment.

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
after
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
take
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
world
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,
but
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
back."
