    A lawyer and two friends, a Rabbi and a Hindu holy man, had car trouble in the
    countryside and asked to spend the night with a farmer. The farmer said "There
    might be a problem; you see, I only have room for two to sleep, so one of you
    must sleep in the barn."
    "No problem," said the Rabbi, "My people wandered in the desert for forty
    years, I am humble enough to sleep in the barn for an evening." With that he
    departed to the barn and the others bedded down for the night. Moments later a
    knock was heard at the door; the farmer opened the door, there stood the Rabbi
    from the barn.
    "What's wrong?" asked the farmer. He replied, "I am grateful to you, but I
    can't sleep in the barn. There is a pig in the barn and my faith believes that
    is an unclean animal." His Hindu friend agrees to swap places with him. But a
    few minutes late the same scene reoccurs. There is a knock on the door,
    "What's wrong, now?" the farmer asks. The Hindu holy man replies, "I too am
    grateful for your helping us out but there is a cow in the barn and in my
    country cows are considered sacred. I can't sleep on holy ground!"
    Well, that leaves only the lawyer to make the change. He grumbled and
    complained, but went out to the barn.
    Moments later there was another knock on the farmer’s door. Frustrated and
    tired, the farmer opens the door, and there stood the pig and the cow.
