man on a camel rode through miles of sun
drenched desert searching for some sign of life.
His supplies were running low when his camel died.
Now on foot he desperately sought refuge from
the scorching heat, and most importantly
a source for water.
he came across a vendor in
the middle of the desert.
"Thank God I found you!" the man cried.
"Please help me, I'm in dire need of water!"
"Well," said the vendor, "I don't have any water,
but would you like to buy one of these fine ties?
am I going to do with a tie?" the man asked.
"That's what I'm selling sir, and if you don't like it,
then I can't help you.
man left the vendor and walked on for many more
miles, praying each mile that he would find refuge from
the scorching sun. Squinting his eyes
he thought he saw in the distance a restaurant.
It must be a mirage he thought but he decided
to check it out anyway.
he approached the door, his mouth opened in amazement,
seeing that the restaurant was real!
The doorman stopped him as he tried to enter.
"Excuse me sir, but you can't come in here without a tie."
