Sounds Familiar… ?

JOKE OF THE WEEK, 26 Feb 2018

Dietrich Fischer – TRANSCEND Media Service

A man is taking a walk in Central park in New York. Suddenly he sees a little girl being attacked by a pit bull dog. He runs over and starts fighting with the dog. He succeeds in killing the dog and saving the girl’s life.

A policeman who was watching the scene walks over and says: “You are a hero, tomorrow you can read it in all the newspapers: ‘Brave New Yorker saves the life of little girl'”.

The man says, “But I am not a New Yorker!”

“Oh then it will say in newspapers in the morning, ‘Brave American saves life of little girl'”, the policeman answers.

“But I am not an American!” says the man.

“Oh, what are you then?”

The man says, “I am Iranian!”

The next day the newspapers say, “Islamic extremist kills innocent American dog”.
