The Arab and the Scotsman

Submitted by IN SEINE

Thursday, 26 January 2012

An Arab Sheik was admitted to St Vincents Hospital for heart surgery, but prior to the surgery,the doctors needed to store his blood in case the need arose. As the gentleman had a rare type of blood,it couldn't be found locally, so, the call went out to all the states.
Finally a Scot was located who had a similar blood type.

The Scot willingly donated his blood for the Arab.

After the surgery, the Arab sent the Scotsman as appreciation for giving his blood, a new BMW,diamonds & US dollars.

A couple of days later, once again, the Arab had to go through a corrective surgery. His doctor telephoned the Scotsman who was more than happy to donate his blood again.

After the second surgery, the Arab sent the Scotsman a thank-you card & a jar of candies.

The Scotsman was shocked that the Arab this time did not reciprocate his kind gesture as he had anticipated. He phoned the Arab & asked him: "I thought you would be just as generous as before?"

To this the Arab replied: "Aye, but now I have Scottish blood in my veins!"
