A dry joke (Chris DeSantis)
(smirk, heard it)

A traveler became lost in the desert region of Algeria.  Realizing
his only chance for survival was to find civilization, he began
walking.  Time passed, and he became thirsty.  More time passed,
and he began feeling faint.  Reduced to crawling, he was on the
verge of passing out when he spied a tent about 500 meters in
front of him.  Barely conscious, he reached the tent and called out,

A bedouin appeared in the tent door and replied sympathetically,
"I am sorry, sir, but I have no water.  However, would you like to
buy a tie?"   With this, he brandished a collection of exquisite
silken neckwear.

"You fool," gasped the man.  "I'm dying!  I need water!"

"Well, sir," replied the bedouin, "If you really need water, there is
a tent about 2 kilometers south of here where you can get some."

Without knowing how, the man summoned sufficient strength to
drag his parched body the distance to the second tent.  With his
last ounce of strength he tugged at the door of the tent and

Another bedouin, dressed in a costly tuxedo, appeared at the door
and enquired, "May I help you sir?"

"Water..." was the feeble reply.

"Oh, sir," replied the bedouin, "I'm sorry, but you can't come in
here without a tie!"


I first heard this joke about 20 years ago from my mother.... I have
no idea where it originated, but I thought it was painfully funny.
