Make Mine Black

My coffee, I mean.

An old joke, really a variation on a theme, arrived in this morning’s mail. Since the tea leaves in my first cup left explicit instructions – “develop a sense of humor and inflict it on others” – here you are. Lots of nationalities and ethnic groups insulted with just one cuppa joe:

Waiter, there’s some coffee with my flyWhat happens when a fly falls into a coffee cup? Well, the outcome is dependent on your cultural proclivities:

The Italian throws the cup, breaks it, and walks away in a fit of rage.

The German carefully washes the cup, sterilizes it and makes a new cup of coffee.

The Frenchman takes out the fly, and drinks the coffee.

The Chinese eats the fly and throws away the coffee.

The Russian drinks the coffee with the fly, since it was extra with no charge.

The Israeli sells the coffee to the Frenchman, sells the fly to the Chinese, sells the cup to the Italian, drinks a cup of tea, and uses the extra money to invent a device that prevents flies from falling into coffee.

Ah, but what does the Palestinian do with his fly infested coffee? I thought you’d never ask…
– – – – – – – –

The Palestinian blames the Israeli for the fly falling into his coffee, protests the act of aggression to the UN, takes a loan from the European Union to buy a new cup of coffee, uses the money to purchase explosives and then blows up the coffee house where the Italian, the Frenchman, the Chinese, the German and the Russian are all trying to explain to the Israeli that he should give away his cup of tea to the Palestinian.

Note: the war weary Israeli was wearing full body armor, so he lived to tell us this tale.

  1. After the Frenchman, you should mention the Englishman.

    The Englishman apologizes to the fly for being in his way, pays to have it’s medical bills taken care of, then offers to share the coffee with all the other fly relatives, since Englishman are polite and drink tea anyway, then ends up with the tea being drank by the fly family also. The Englishman wonders why he has no tea.

  2. You’ve got it wrong.

    The Russian, German, Frenchman and Palestinian all blame the fly on the evil neocon Zionazi Israeli Jew and vote their approval when the Pali dons a suicide vest and blows up the Jew yelling “Allahu Akbar! Hitler Akbar!”

  3. The Englishman addition was brilliant. I see sharia-welcoming archdemondruid
    Rowan Williams in the part.

    A slight inaccuracy in the original is the Palestinian taking a misnamed “loan” from the EU. The only “interest” the EU is getting on that capital that will never be repaid is more rockets into Israel. The EU excuses itself there and elsewhere (e.g. Africa) by pretending that it is feeding the starving instead of prolonging the lives of thug governments who would be voted out or forcibly thrown out by the truly starving.
