What happens when a fly falls into a coffee cup?
An Italian - throws the cup, breaks it, and walks away in a fit of rage.
A German - carefully washes the cup, sterilizes it and makes a new cup of coffee.
A Frenchman - takes out the fly, and drinks the coffee.
A Chinese - eats the fly and throws away the coffee.
A Russian - Drinks the coffee with the fly, since it was extra with no charge.
An Israeli - sells the coffee to the Frenchman, the fly to the Chinese, drinks tea and uses the extra money to invent a device that prevents flies from falling into coffee.
A Palestinian - blames the Israeli for the fly falling in his coffee, protests the act of aggression to the UN, takes a loan from the European Union to buy a new cup of coffee, uses the money to purchase explosives and then blows up the coffee house where the Italian, the Frenchman, the Chinese, the German and the Russian are all trying to explain to the Israeli that he should give away his cup of tea to the Palestinian.
