    Let's STOP the pettiness now!


    Two Arabs boarded a flight out of London. One took a window seat and
    the other sat next to him in the middle seat.

    Just before takeoff, a Marine sat down in the aisle seat.

    After takeoff, the Marine kicked his shoes off, wiggled his toes and was
    settling in when the Arab in the window seat said, "I need to get up and
    get a coke."

    "Don't get up," said the Marine, "I'm in the aisle seat, I'll get it for you."

    As soon as he left, one of the Arabs picked up the Marines shoe and spat in it.

    When the Marine returned with the coke, the other Arab said, "That looks
    good, I'd really like one, too."

    Again, the Marine obligingly went to fetch it.

    While he was gone the other Arab picked up the Marines other shoe and spat in it.

    When the Marine returned, they all sat back and enjoyed the flight. As the
    plane was landing, the Marine slipped his feet into his shoes and knew
    immediately what had happened.

    "Why does it have to be this way?" he asked.

    "How long must this go on?

    This fighting between our nations?

    This hatred?

    This animosity?

    The spitting in shoes.

    The pissing in Cokes."

    Leave it to military personnel to understand the value of pre-emptive strikes. That was too funny!

    Good one,
