An acceptable joke?
This came to me from a friend in India:
Today's Joke, fit for an 11 year old, comes from an Iranian friend of mine who wishes to remain anonymous.A US Republican Senator gets on a plane and finds himself seated next to an Iranian lady.
He sees her Iranian passport and strikes up a conversation.
"So tell me," he says, "why does a country like Iran - with so much oil and gas - need a nuclear programme?"
The Iranian lady looks at him, a little puzzled.
"That's a very interesting question," she says, "but let me ask you something first.
A horse, a cow and a deer all eat the same stuff...grass.
Yet the deer excretes little pellets, the cow turns out a flat patty and the horse produces muffins of dried poop.
Why do you suppose that is?
The American guy is dumbfounded.
Finally, he replies: "I haven't the slightest idea."
"Oh, I see," says the Iranian, "so how is it you feel qualified to discuss Iran's nuclear programme when you don't know s**t?"
I really had to laugh at this one!
