The Emperor's New Samurai

Post by Drs.Dad » Mon Aug 31, 2015 7:58 pm

Once upon a time, a powerful Emperor of Japan advertised for a new Chief Samurai.

After a year, only three had applied for the job.... a Japanese, a Chinese, and a Jewish Samurai.

"Demonstrate your skills!" commanded the Emperor.

The Japanese Samurai stepped forward, opened a tiny box, and released a fly.
He drew his samurai sword and *swish!* the fly fell to the floor, neatly divided in two.

"What a feat!" said the Emperor.

"Number Two Samurai, show me what you do."

The Chinese samurai smiled confidently, stepped forward and opened a tiny box, releasing a fly.
He drew his samurai sword and *swish!*swish!* The fly fell to the floor neatly quartered.

"That is skill!" nodded the Emperor. "How are you going to top that, Number three Samurai?"

The Jewish samurai, Solly Obi-Wan Goldstein, stepped forward and opened a tiny box releasing one fly.

He drew his samurai sword and *swoooooosh!* flourished hissword so mightily that a gust of wind blew
through the room.

But the fly was still buzzing around!

In disappointment, the Emperor said, "What kind of skill is that? The fly isn't even dead."

"Dead?" replied the Jewish samurai

"Dead is easy.... but circumcised?????????"
