A guy was walking down a street in Ireland when a man approached from behind him and stuck a knife to the the guy’s throat.
“Be you protestant or catholic”, the assailant asked.
The guy thought “If I say I’m catholic and he’s protestant, I’m a dead man. If I say I’m protestant and he’s catholic, I’m a dead man.” After a little thought, the guy said, “I’m Jewish, I’M JEWISH”.
“Aha,” the assailant said, “I have to be the luckiest Arab in Ireland!”.
