Get Up Stand Up! - You CAN DO IT
A Hindu man, a Jewish man and a media critic are travelling to a spiritual conference when the car breaks down. The nearby farmer says I can put two of you up but one of you'll have to sleep in the barn.
The Hindu fella says to the farmer "I am a humble man, your barn will be just fine." A moment later there's a knock at the door, it's the Hindu fella saying "There is a cow in the barn. A cow is a sacred animal - I cannot sleep with a cow."
So the Rabbi puts up his hand. "Let me go then. I am a humble man also." A moment later there's a knock at the door and it's the Rabbi "There is a pig in the barn. Pigs are considered unclean - I cannot sleep with a pig."
