Three Samurai

Once there was a powerful Japanese emperor. He sent out a declaration throughout the world that he was searching for a Chief Samurai. A year passed, but only 3 people applied for the very demanding position:

1. A Chinese Samurai
2. A Japanese Samurai
3. A Jewish Samurai

The emperor asked each Samurai to demonstrate why he should be the Chief Samurai. The Chinese Samurai opened a matchbox, and out popped a bumblebee. Whoosh! went his sword, and the bumblebee dropped dead on the ground.

The emperor exclaimed, "That is very impressive!"

The Japanese Samurai also opened a matchbox, and out buzzed a fly. Whoosh! Whoosh! went his sword, and the fly dropped dead on the ground in 4 small pieces.

The emperor exclaimed, "That is VERY impressive!"

The Jewish Samurai also opened a matchbox, and out flew a gnat. His flashing sword went Whoosh! but the gnat was still alive and flying around.

The emperor protested "Very ambitious, buy why is the gnat not dead?

The Jewish Samurai smiled and said "Circumcision is not meant to kill"
