Clash of Cultures
How Long Must This Go On?

Two Muslims boarded a flight out of London. One took a window seat and the other sat next to him in the middle seat. Just before takeoff, an American sat down in the aisle seat. After takeoff, the American kicked his shoes off, wiggled his toes and was settling in when the Muslim in the window seat said, "I need to get up and get a coke." "Don't get up" said the American, "I'm in the aisle seat. I'll get it for you."

As soon as he left, one of the Muslims picked up the American's shoe and spit in it. When he returned with the coke, the other Muslim said,
"That looks good, I'd really like one, too."
Again, the American obligingly went to fetch it. While he was gone the other Muslim picked up his other shoe and spit in it.
When the American returned, they all sat back and enjoyed the flight.
As the plane was landing, the American slipped his feet into his shoes and knew immediately what had happened.
"Why does it have to be this way?" he asked. "How long must this go on? This fighting between our cultures? This hatred? This animosity?
This spitting in shoes and pissing in cokes."
