A man was stranded in the desert.
Thursday, October 11, 2018
A man traveling through the desert was desperate for water. After three days he was on his hands and knees crawling along when he spotted a man coming towards him with a suitcase. "Water," cried the traveler. "Please, water!"
"Sorry," replied the man as he opened his suitcase. "I haven't any water to spare but I can sell you a tie if you like."
“No, water, water!” gasped the traveler. “Are you sure?” asked the man with the suitcase.“Yes,” grunted the traveler, and he crawled onwards.
A few hours later, he crawled up a sand dune and spotted an oasis just a few metres away, with a delicious, inviting pool of clear water plainly in view. The traveler crawled on until he stopped by the feet of the groundsman.
“Water, water!” gasped the traveler.
The groundsman was about the open the gate, but then looked at the traveler and stopped. “Sorry sir,” he said. “But we cannot admit gentlemen unless they are wearing ties.”
