Once Indian was sitting with a Pakistani and a Malaysian in Saudi Arabia,sharing a smuggled barrel of beer, when all of a sudden, Saudi police entered and arrested them.
They were initially sentenced to death but they contested this and were finally imprisoned for life.
But, as It was a national holiday, the Sheikh decided they should be released after receiving 20 lashes of the whip.
As they were preparing for their punishment, the Sheikh suddenly said: "It's my first wife's birthday today, and she asked me to allow each of you one wish before your whipping."
So the Malaysian guy thought for a while and then said: "Please be tieing a pillow to my back."This was done but the pillow only lasted 10 lashes before the whip went through.
The Pakistani guy, watching the scene, said: "Please fix two pillows on my back". But even two pillows could only take 10 lashes before the whip went through again.
Before Indian could say something, the Sheikh turned to him and said: "As you are from a small country, and your football team and your golfers are terrible, and your women skinny (Saudis love fat women) you can have two wishes!".
"Thank you, Most Royal and Merciful Highness", Indian replies.
"My first wish is: " I would like to have 40 lashes." "If you so desire",the Sheik replies with a questioning look on his face, "and your second wish?"
"Tie that Pakistani to my back", Indian answers.
