A Doctor's Story

A Doctor, an Engineer & a Politician

A doctor, an engineer and a politician were travelling together in the countryside.

They stopped at a small country inn for the night.

"I have only two rooms, so one of you will have to sleep in the barn," said the innkeeper.

The doctor volunteered to sleep in the barn, went outside, and the others went to bed.

A short time later they were awakened by a knock.

It was the doctor, who said, "There's a cow in that barn. I'm a Hindu, and it would offend my beliefs to sleep next to a sacred animal."

The engineer said he'd be willing to sleep in the barn and left. The others went back to bed, but soon were awakened by another knock.

It was the engineer, who said, "There's are pigs in the barn. I'm Muslim, and I can't sleep next to such animals."

So the politician was sent to the barn. It was getting really late, the others were very tired and soon fell asleep.

But then they were awakened by an even louder knocking.

They opened the door and were surprised by what they saw: It was the cow and the pigs!

Politician is an unwelcome bed-fellow, said the cow!

"Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first."

Ronald Reagan
