So, a Hindu man, a Jewish rabbi and UR tic fan lost there way while walking together on a hike in the mountains. It was dark and cold and they were no where near the trailhead where there cars were. In the distance, they could see a farmhouse with a light on. The 3 knocked on the door and an old farmer answered. The 3 explained they took a wrong turn and were not going to be able to get back to there cars till daylight. They asked if they could stay at the farmhouse for the night to escape the cold. The farmer said "of course, but there is one caveat. I have a small spare bed room and a couch. One of you will have to sleep in the barn."
The Hindu man stepped up and said "I will sleep in the barn. I come from India which is densely populated and living quarters can be cramped at times. This will not be a hardship for me at all." So the rabbi and tic fan headed to sleep in the house while the Hindu man took a blanket and headed to the barn.
2 minutes later there was a knock on the door.
It was the Hindu man. He said "My friends, I am sorry to disturb you, but I can't sleep in the barn. There is a cow in the barn. In my culture, the cow is the most sacred of all creatures. It would be wrong of me to intrude on such a holy creatures living space."
The rabbi immediately stepped up and said. "I understand. I too am religious. I am Jewish and my people have been persecuted for thousands of years. I can handle any adversity and will gladly sleep in the barn." The Hindu guy and Tic fan went back inside and the Rabbi headed to the barn with a blanket.
2 minutes later there was a knock on the door.
It was the rabbi. The rabbi said "I am sorry my friends, but no one told me there was a pig in the barn. In my religion, the pig is the filthiest of animals. It would be sinful and non kosher for me to step foot near such a beast."
So the tic fan said "All right, all right, I will sleep in the barn! If anyone knows adversity, its me. We have had a losing sports program for ions and everywhere I go, people look down on me as an elitist prick. A night in the barn is nothing for me." The tic fan grabbed the blanket and went out to the barn while the rabbi and Hindu man retreated inside the house.
2 minutes later there was a knock on the door.
It was the pig and the cow.
