The Arab and the Scotsman

An Arab Sheik was admitted to St Vincents Hospital for

heart surgery, but prior to the surgery, the doctors needed to store his

blood in case the need arose. As the gentleman had a rare type of blood, it

couldn't be found locally, so, the call went out to all the states.

Finally a Scot was located who had a similar blood type. The Scot

willingly donated his blood for the Arab.

After the surgery, the Arab sent the Scotsman as appreciation for

giving his blood, a new BMW, diamonds & US dollars.

A couple of days later, once again, the Arab had to go through a

corrective surgery. His doctor telephoned the Scotsman who was more than

happy to donate his blood again.

After the second surgery, the Arab sent the Scotsman a thank-you

card & a jar of candies.

The Scotsman was shocked that the Arab this time did not


his kind gesture as he had anticipated.

He phoned the Arab & asked him: "I thought you would be generous

again, that you would give me a BMW, diamonds & money... But you only gave

me a thank-you card & a jar of candies".

To this the Arab replied: "Aye, but I now have Scottish

blood in

my veins".__
