Joke of the Week

A powerful Japanese emperor needs a new chief samurai. So he sends out a declaration throughout the entire known world that he is searching for a chief. A year passes and only three people apply for the very demanding position: a Japanese samurai, a Chinese samurai and a Jewish samurai. The emperor asks the Japanese samurai to come in and demonstrate why he should be the chief samurai. The samurai opens a matchbox and out pops a bumblebee. Whoosh goes his sword. The bumblebee drops dead, chopped in half. The emperor exclaims: ”That is very impressive!” He then issues the same challenge to the Chinese samurai, to demonstrate why he should be chosen. The Chinese samurai also opens a matchbox and out buzzes a fly. Whoosh, whoosh! The fly drops dead, chopped into four small pieces. The emperor exclaims: ”That is very impressive!” Now the emperor turns to the Jewish samurai and asks him to demonstrate why he should be the chief samurai. The Jewish samurai opens a matchbox and out flies a gnat. His flashing sword goes whoosh! But the gnat is still alive. The emperor, obviously disappointed, says: ”Very ambitious but why is that gnat not dead?” The Jewish samurai smiles and says: ”Circumcision is not meant to kill.”
