What Happens when a Fly
Falls into a Cup of Coffee


The Italian throws the cup against the wall and walks away in a fit of rage.

The Frenchman takes out the fly and drinks the coffee.

The Chinese eats the fly and throws away the coffee.

The Israeli sells the coffee to the Frenchman, the fly to
the Chinese, buys himself a new cup of coffee, and uses
the extra money to invent a device that prevents flies from
falling into coffee.

The Palestinian blames the Israeli for the fly falling into
his coffee, protests the act of aggression to the United Nations, takes out a loan from the European Union for a new cup of coffee, uses the money to purchase explosives, and then blows up the coffee house where the Italian, the Frenchman, and the Chinese are trying to explain to the Israeli why he should give his coffee to the Palestinian.

לֵב שָׂמֵחַ יֵיטִב גֵּהָה וְרוּחַ נְכֵאָה תְּיַבֶּשׁ־גָּרֶם׃

A merry heart doeth good like a medicine;
but a broken spirit drieth the bones.

(Proverbs 17:22)
