The Scottish Arab...
« on: November 14, 2013, 01:28:14 pm »
With apologies to all...

An Arab Sheik was admitted to hospital for heart surgery, but prior to the surgery, the doctors needed to store his blood in case the need arose.

As the gentleman had a rare type of blood, it couldn't be found locally, so, the call went out.

Finally a Scotsman was located who had a similar blood type. The Scot willingly donated his blood for the Arab.

After the surgery, the Arab sent the Scotsman, as appreciation for giving his blood, a new BMW, diamonds and US dollars.

A couple of days later, once again, the Arab had to go through corrective surgery.

His doctor telephoned the Scotsman who was more than happy to donate his blood again.

After the second surgery, the Arab sent the Scotsman a Thank-you card and a box of Quality Street chocolates.

The Scotsman was shocked that the Arab did not reciprocate his kind gesture as he had anticipated.

He phoned the Arab and asked him, "I thought you would show your generosity again, & would give me another BMW, diamonds, and money, but you only gave me a Thank-you Card and a box of Quality Street .."

To this the Arab replied, "Aye laddie, but I now have Scottish blood in ma veins .... ."
Best wishes,

Real cute.

I had a flashback about a time Gisele and I were in Glascow. Next door to our hotel was  a fruit stand. (We always ate a lot of fruit when we travelled, for obvious reasons.) The stand was operated by a young Chinese girl. She spoke to us with an incredibly thick Scottish brogue. It seemed so incongruent to hear her……………………an experience I shall never forget……………………………GG

P.S.  Another flashback:   During WW-II, my ship visited the seaport of Port of Spain in Trinidad, just off the coast of South America. As thirsty young sailors will do, we immediately visited a bar. The bartender was a tall black man. Just coming from the States, I was astounded to hear him speak with an elegant British accent…………
