Sri Lankan Jews
« on: August 18, 2005, 01:17:23 PM »

Two Jewish tourists, "Sid" and "Al", were travelling through Sri Lanka.
Sitting in a Colombo restaurant. Sid asked Al, "Are there any people of our
faith born and raised in Sri Lanka?" Al replied, "I don't know, let's ask
our waiter." When the waiter came by, Al asked him, "Are there any Sri
Lankan Jews?" and the waiter said, "I don't know Sir, I'll ask the cooks."
He returned from the kitchen in a few minutes and said "No sir, no Sri
Lankan Jews." Al wasn't really satisfied with that and asked, "Are you
absolutely sure?"

The waiter, realizing he was dealing with foreign tourists gave the expected
answer, "I will check again, Sir!" and went back into the kitchen. While the
waiter was away, Sid said, "I find it hard to believe that there are no Jews
in Sri Lanka. Our people are scattered everywhere in
the world."

The waiter returned and said, "Sir, the head cook said there is no Sri
Lankan Jews." "Are you certain?" Al asked once again, "I can't believe there
are no Sri Lankan Jews!"

"Sir, I asked EVERYONE," replied the exasperated waiter. "All we have is
Orange Jews, Mango Jews, Prune Jews, Tomato Jews and Grape Jews
