A Barnstormer Night's Tale
It was a dark and stormy night (no, really!).
A Jewish gentleman, a Hindu gentleman and a lawyer were traveling together down a country road (the circumstances bringing them together have never been explained).
Suddenly, their car broke down in the middle of nowhere, somewhere (of-course!). Calls to roadside assistance did not go through (no self-respecting cell phone works in dark and stormy weather).

The understanding Jewish gentleman said he would sleep in the barn instead. The farmer shrugged, happy to get back to his 40 Zzzz.
A few minutes passed and there was frantic knocking on the door. The farmer opened the door to find the Jewish gentleman saying “Ummm . . . So Sorry! BUT . . . there is a pig in the barn and it is simply not kosher for me to sleep in there!”
Exasperated, the lawyer stomped out into the cold night muttering he would sleep in the damn barn.
A few minutes passed and there was frantic knocking on the door.
The furious farmer flung open the door to find . . .
