….were caught red handed drinking alcohol in Saudi Arabia, where consumption of Alcohol is strictly forbidden. The three of them are being dragged in front of the Sultan, who says:
“You will get 50 lashes for the consumption of alcohol. However, since you are foreigners and did not know about the prohibition, I will be lenient. Each of you will have a wish before getting the punishment.
You start, Togolese.”
“I wish that you tie a pillow to my back, bevor you flog me.” His wish gets fulfilled, but the flogging is so strong that the pillow tears after 25 lashes.
The Nigerian sees it, and wants to have 2 pillows on his back but still, the pillows get torn early. Now the Sultan turns to the Ghanaman, and says:
“Now, Ghanaian, since I am a big football fan and you play such beautiful football, I will be especially lenient to you. You have 2 wishes, but choose well. Ghanaman says: “First of all I want 100 lashes”.
The Nigerian and the Togolese look at themselves flabbergasted. The Sultan replies:
“I do not understand it , but we will grant you the double number of lashes! And your second wish?” “Tie me with the Nigerian on my back”
