    An American, a Dutchman and a Frenchman are all in Iran, sharing a smuggled crate of booze when, all of a sudden, Iranian police rush in and arrest them. The mere possession of alcohol is a severe offense in Iran, so for the terrible crime of actually being caught consuming the booze, they are all sentenced to death!


    However, after many months and with the help of very good lawyers, they are able to successfully appeal their sentences down to life imprisonment.


    By a struck of luck, it was an Iranian national holiday the day their trial finished, and the extremely benevolent Sheikh sentencing them decided they could be released after receiving just 20 lashes of the whip.


    As they were preparing for their punishment, the Sheikh announced: "It's my first wife's birthday today, and she has asked me to allow each of you one wish before your whipping."


    The Dutchman was first in line. He thought for a while and then said: "Please tie a pillow to my back."


    This was done, but the pillow only lasted 10 lashes before the whip went through. When the punishement was done he had to carried away, bleeding and crying in pain.


    The Frenchman was next up. After watching the Dutchman in horror, he said smugly, "Please fix two pillows to my back."





    Even two pillows could only take 15 lashes before the whip went through and the Frenchman was soon led away whimpering loudly (as they do).


    The American was the last one up but, before he could say anything, the Sheikh turned to him and said, "You are from a most beautiful part of the world and your culture is one of the finest in the world. For this, you may have two wishes!"


    "Thank you, your Most Royal and Merciful highness," the American replied. "In recognition of your kindness, my first wish is that you give me not 20, but 100 lashes."


    "Not only are you an honorable, handsome and powerful man, you are also very brave," the Sheikh said. "If 100 lashes is what you desire, then so be it. And your second wish, what is it to be?"


    The American replied: "Tie the Frenchman to my back."
