World Peace


Two Arabs boarded a flight out of London. One took a window seat and
the other sat next to him in the middle seat.

Just before takeoff, an American sat down in the aisle seat. After
takeoff, the American kicked his shoes off, wiggled his toes and was
settling in when the Arab in the window seat said, "I need to get up
and get a coke."

"Don't get up," said the American, "I'm in the aisle seat, I'll get it for you."
As soon as he left, one of the Arabs picked up the American's shoe and
spat in it. When the American returned with the coke, the other Arab said,

"That looks good, I'd really like one, too."

Again, the American obligingly went to fetch it. While he was gone the
other Arab picked up the American's other shoe and spat in it.
When the American returned, they all sat back and enjoyed the flight.
As the plane was landing, the American slipped his feet into his shoes
and knew immediately what had happened.

"Why does it have to be this way?" he asked. "How long must this go
on? This fighting between our nations? This hatred? This animosity?
This spitting in shoes and pissing in cokes."

World peace is tough.
