My Parents get an Offer
My parents come to see my show whenever they come to town. It's great to have them in my audience. They get special attention from the owners (usually dinner) and I try to do my best show for them. At one such evening, I joined them at their table after I had changed from my costume. "After your show an Iraqi gentleman offered your father forty camels for you, dear," my mother explained. "What?!? What did you say?" I demanded of my Dad. "Well," my Mom began again, "we didn't know what to say for a moment, then I thanked him, but said we had other plans for you." "Dad!! Why didn't you say anything??" I asked. His reply: "I was waiting for him to throw in an elephant!"
