A Pakistani, a Indian and a Philipino in Saudi Arabia, sharing a smuggled barrel of whisky, when all of a sudden Saudi police entered and arrested them.They were sentenced jail term with each receiving 20 lashes of the whip.
As they were preparing for their lashes punishment, the Sheikh suddenly said: “It’s my 4th wife’s birthday today, and she asked me to allow each one of you, one wish before your whipping.”So the Philipino guy thought for a while and then said: “Please tie a pillow to my back.” This was done but the pillow only lasted 10 lashes before the whip went through. The Indian guy, watching the scene, said: “Please fix two pillows on my back”. But even two pillows could only take 12 lashes before they went through gain.
Before the Pakistani fellow could say something, the Sheikh turned to him and said: “just because of Saudi relations with Nawaz Shareef you can have 2 wishes instead of one” Thank you, Most Royal and Merciful Highness”, the Pakistani replied. “My first wish is: “I would like to have 40 lashes instead of 20.”
“If you so desire”, the Sheikh replies with questioning look on face, “and your second wish?” “Tie the Indian to my back”, the Pakistani answered.
