Who Will Sleep In The Barn?

A banker, an engineer and a lawyer were driving down a road when their car stops working.

Seeing a farm house near by, they decide to stop by and ask if they could sleep over night while their car was being repaired.

“Sure”, replied the farmer, “but I only have two spare beds – one of you will have to sleep in the barn.”

The engineer decides that he would do it.

Ten minutes later, there is a knock at the front door.

“I can’t sleep in the barn – there’s a cow in the barn and I am a Hindu.”

So, the banker agrees to sleep in the barn.

Ten minutes later, there is another knock at the door:

“I can’t sleep in the barn – there is a pig in the barn, and I am Jewish.”

The lawyer says “I know what you’re up to, but I’ll go,” and so the lawyer goes out to the barn.

Sure enough, ten minutes later, there is a third knock at the door – the cow and the pig appear.
