Gurau Biar Bertempat (Kolum Kushwant Singh)

An Iranian walks into a bar in America late one night. An American guy takes the stool beside him. ‘Are you one of those ‘ians’ ? asks the American, with a contemptuous smile. The astonished Iranian asks, ‘What do you mean?’ “No difference, Arabian, Iranian, Indian, all the same,” says the American in a humiliating tone, laughing out loud. The Iranian asks instead, “Are you one of those ‘keys’?” “What would that mean,?” the American asks. The Iranian replies, “No difference: donkey, Yankee, monkey, all the same.”
