    A man is taking a walk in Central park in New York. Suddenly he sees a little girl being attacked by a pit bull dog . He runs over and starts fighting with the dog. He succeeds in killing the dog and saving the girl's life. A policeman who was watching the scene walks over and says: "You are a hero, tomorrow you can read it in all the newspapers: "Brave New Yorker saves the life of little girl" The man says: - "But I am not a New Yorker!" "Oh ,then it will say in newspapers in the morning: 'Brave American saves life of little girl'" – the policeman answers. "But I am not
    an American!" – says the man. "Oh, what are you then? " The man says: - "I am a Saudi !" The next day the newspapers says: "Islamic extremist kills innocent American dog.

    That's too close to reality for me to take it as a joke.

    I guess that's the thing with jokes, what might be funny to me isn't funny to you.

    I understand, It was posted on a Muslim website years ago. I think why I find it funny is because as Muslims we can relate to this. It's making fun of the double standard in today's media.

    It's all in the delivery.
    When we can see the punch line half way
    thru the joke, the element of surprise is lost.
