The Farmer and His Guests

December 15, 2015
Three friends, a Rabbi,  a Hindu holy man and a lawyer, had car trouble in the countryside and asked to spend the night with a farmer.
 The farmer said “There might be a problem; you see, I only have room for two to sleep, so one of you must sleep in the barn.” “No problem,” chimed the Rabbi, “My people wandered in the desert for forty years, I am humble enough to sleep in the barn for an evening in their memory.”  With that he departed to the barn and the others bedded down for the night.
 Moments later a knock was heard at the door; the farmer opened the door. There stood the Rabbi from the barn. “What’s wrong?” asked the farmer.  He replied, “I am grateful to you, good sir, but I can’t sleep in the barn. There is a pig in the barn and my faith believes that is an unclean animal.”

There is a knock on the door.  “What’s wrong, now?” the farmer asks.  The Hindu holy man replies, “I too am grateful for your helping us out but there is a cow in the barn and in my country cows are considered sacred. I can’t sleep on holy ground!”

 Moments later there was another knock on the farmers door.
 Frustrated and tired, the farmer opens the door, and there stood…
 The pig and the cow.
