FlyHi Posted January 19, 2017 Report Share Posted January 19, 2017 A fleeing Taliban fighter, desperate for water, was plodding through the Afghan desert when he saw trees far off in the distance. Hoping to find water, he hurried toward the oasis only to find a British soldier with a small stall. He was a Para selling regimental ties. The Taliban asked, "Do you have water?” The para replied, "There is no water, the well is dry. Would you like to buy a tie instead? They are only £5 sterling." The Taliban shouted, "You idiot infidel! I do not need an over-priced tie. I need water! I should kill you, but I must find water first!" "OK," said the Para, "It does not matter that you do not want to buy a tie and that you hate me. I will show you that I am bigger than that, and that I am a much better human being than you. If you continue over that hill to the east for about two miles, you will find our Officers Mess. It has all the ice cold water you need.. " Cursing him, the Taliban staggered away over the hill. Several hours later he staggered back, collapsed with dehydration & rasped... "They won't let me in without a bloody tie! 12 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
