Ramadan Joke from Hayfa

Thank you, Hayfa!

Michael and Mohammed

Two guys lost in the Sahara desert, one is David and the other is Michael.. They were dying of hunger and thirst when they suddenly came upon an oasis, with what looked like an emirates with a mosque in the middle..

David said to Michael: “look, let’s pretend we’re Muslim, otherwise we’ll not get any food or drink. I’m going to call myself “Mohammed”. Michael refused to change his name, he said: “My name is Michael,and I won’t pretend to be other than but what I am…Michael”..

The Imam of the mosque received both well and asked about their names, David said: “my name is Mohammed” Michael said: “my name is Michael” The Imam turned to the helpers of the mosque and said:

“Please bring some food and water for Michael only”

Then he turned to the other and said: “Marhaba Mohammed, Ramadan Kareem”…!!

  2. Bader, I think honesty is always the best policy, otherwise things get a little crazy. Unless your wife is asking if her behind looks too big in this dress, LOL, then the diplomatic answer is “I love your behind!”

  3. Good one 🙂

    p.s. I recently made your rocking pecan pie. Unfortunately the pastry shell I used was a “savoury” one rather than the Graham one made for desserts. Plus I ended up burning my left forefinger by touching the hot plate without a glove. Plus the pecan pie didn’t end up tasting as good as before. Still, I love you for keeping that recipe on your site, it’s the best 😀

  4. LLOOLL, honestly, it tastes wonderful with a graham cracker (digestive biscuit) crust! I had a friend once who made a pie using cream cheese and blueberries. Unfortunately, the cream cheese she bought had chives and garlic in it, so the combination was . . . . hmmm, unusual. A little jarring! On the blog, I think there are some very simple tiny pecan muffins that are irresistable . . . try those 🙂

  5. Garlic and Chives!!!! LOL

    (I shouldn’t laugh at others, I once poured in dish washing detergent in my pan instead of olive oil. Thank God it had a really strong soapy smell so I knew something was up when my heated ‘oil’ smelled zesty!)
