Recommended Posts

saw something far off in the distance.


Hoping to find water, he walked toward the image, only to find a little old

peddler sitting at a card table with a bunch of ties laid out for sale.


The parched wanderer asked, "Please, I'm dying of thirst, can I have some



The man replied "I don't have any water, but why don't you buy a tie? Here's

one that goes nicely with your clothes."


The desperate man shouted, "I don't want a tie, you idiot, I need water!"


"OK, don't buy a tie. But to show you what a nice guy I am, I'll tell you

that over that hill there, about 5 miles, is a nice restaurant. Walk that

way, they'll give you all the water you want."


The man thanked the peddler and walked away toward the hill and eventually

disappeared out of sight. Three hours later he returned. The man at the card

table asked, "I told you, about 5 miles over that hill. Couldn't you find



"I found it all right. They wouldn't let me in without a tie."
