Two beggers

#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?
