Three mates, a Muslim Ammar, a Hindu Gautam and a Lawyer Chris, had car accident in the countryside and asked to spend the night with a farmer.
The farmer said, “There might be a problem, I only have room for two to sleep, so one of you must sleep in the barn. Do you understand?” “No problem,” chimed Ammar, “My people wandered in the desert for thirty five 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.
Seconds later a knock was heard at the door; the farmer opened the door. There stood Ammar 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 a dirty animal.”
His Hindu friend Gautam agreed to swap places with him. But a few minutes later the same scene reoccurred. There was a knock on the door. “What’s wrong, now?” the farmer asked. Gautam replied, “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!”
Well, that left only Chris to make the change. He grumbled and complained, but went out to the barn.
Minutes later there was another knock on the farmers door.
Frustrated and tired, the farmer opened the door, and there stood…
The pig and the cow.
