a Jewish captain. His copilot is Chinese. It's the first time they've
flown together, and an awkward silence between the two seems to indicate
a mutual dislike. Once they reach cruising altitude, the Jewish captain
activates the auto-pilot, leans back in
his seat, and mutters, 'I don't like Chinese.' 'No rike Chinese?' asks
the copilot, '....why not?' 'You people bombed Pearl Harbor, that's
why!' says the pilot. 'No, no,' the co-pilot protests, 'Chinese not bomb Peahl Hahbah!
That Japanese, not Chinese.'
'Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese.. . doesn't matter’, says the pilot,
‘you're all the same!'
There's a few minutes of silence. 'I no rike Jews either!' the copilot
suddenly announces. 'Oh yeah, why not?' asks the captain. 'Jews sink
Titanic, that’s why' says the co-pilot 'What?’ exclaims the captain,
‘That's insane, Jews didn't sink the Titanic! It was an

John also lives in the West, but was also holidaying over in the East when

John, who knows a thing or two about heart attacks, is taking it easy

where was this photo taken??
An elderly Italian man, who lived on the outskirts of Monte Cassino,
went to the local church for confession. When the priest slid open the
panel in the confessional, the man said, 'Father ... during World War
II, a beautiful Jewish woman from our neighbourhood knocked urgently on
my door and asked me to hide her from the Nazis. So I hid her in my
The Priest replied, 'That was a wonderful thing you did, my son and you
have no need to confess that.' 'But, there is more to tell, Father. She
started to repay me with sexual favours. This happened several times a
week, and sometimes twice on Sundays.'
The Priest said, 'By doing that, you placed yourselves in great danger.

weakness of the flesh. However, if you are truly sorry for your actions,
you are indeed forgiven.'
'Thank you, Father. That's a great load off my mind but I do have one
