Great joke, but horrible delivery! He should have known that the word JEW in a joke can be derogatory, but JEWISH is politically correct. If it is funny depends how you tell the joke. The joke goes like this... A Taliban militant gets lost and is wandering around the desert looking for water. He finally stumbles upon a small tore run by a Jewish merchant and asks to buy a glass of water. The Jewish vendor tells him he doesn't have any water for sale but can gladly sell him a tie. The Taliban begins to curse and yell at the Jewish store-owner. The Jewish owner, sympathetically, offers the militant a suggestion: Beyond and on the other side of the hill there is a restaurant; they can sell you water. The Taliban pulls himself together and struggles by foot toward the hill. Two and a half days after he crawls back to tie store, sun burned, parched, dieing of thirst and barely able to utter to the merchant: "Your brother said I need a tie to get into his restaurant."
