Two beggers

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

  1. Two beggars in Rome are sitting side by side on a street in Rome. One
    has a cross in front of him; the other one the Star of David.

    Many people go by and look at both beggars, but only put money into the
    hat of the beggar sitting behind the cross.

    A priest comes by, stops and watches throngs of people giving money to
    the beggar behind the cross, but none give to the beggar behind the
    Star
    of David.

    Finally, the priest goes over to the beggar behind the Star of David
    and
    says, "My poor fellow, don't you understand? This is a Catholic
    country;
    this city is the seat of Catholicism. People aren't going to give you
    money if you sit there with a Star of David in front of you, especially
    when you're sitting beside a beggar who has a cross. In fact, they
    would
    probably give to him just out of spite."

    The beggar behind the Star of David listened to the priest, turned to
    the other beggar with the cross and said: "Moishe, look who's trying to
    teach the Goldstein brothers about marketing?
