In a New York park, a young boy was attacked by a savage dog. A passer-by happened to see this
and came to the rescue. Having tackled the dog, he strangled it to death. A reporter for the New
York Times was watching all this and took snap shots for a front page picture in the next days paper.
Approaching our hero he said: "Your heroic feat will be published in tomorrow's paper under
the headline - Brave New Yorker rescues boy".
"I'm not from New York, though" replied the hero.
"Oh? In that case we'll change the headline - 'Brave
American rescues boy from savage dog'". "I'm not American either" replied the hero.
On being asked about who he really was, our hero replied "Well, I'm an Arab."
So the next day the headline on the front page of The New York Times said:
"Muslim Fundamentalist strangles dog to death in New York park. FBI investigating possible
link to al-Qaeda."
