Two types of people
Heard a great joke the other day:
There's a psychology conference somewhere.
An American scholar gives a speech. He says his findings show there are
five types of people. Some grow up in patriarchal families, some in matriarchal
families, some in single-parent families, some in poor families and some
in rich families.
Then a Chinese scholar comes and presents her findings. She says there
are three types of people; good people, bad people, and smart people.
Then it's the Iranian scholar's turn. He says there are only two types
of people: "jendehs" and "koss khols".
Audience members protest. This is a scholarly conference, they say. What
is your proof for this vulgar nonsense?
The Iranian scholar asks one of the protesters to come to the podium.
He asks him, "If I give you a million dollars, will you have sex with
me?" The man says, "Of course not!" The Iranian scholar says,
"Khob, koss kholi deegeh..."
So, we're wither whores or idiots? Something to think about.
Funny stuff, interesting stuff, important stuff, stupid stuff, all
sorts of stuff... Hundreds of daily tidbits were featured in The Iranian
Times. They will be gradually archived here. Have you got something for
