Worth Waiting For

Three men, an Italian, a Frenchman and an Englishman, were condemned to be executed. Their captors told them that they had the right to a final meal of their choice before the execution.

They asked the Frenchman what he wanted. ”

Give me some good French wine and French bread,” he requested. So they gave it to him, he ate it, and then they executed him.

Next it was the Italian’s turn.

“Give me a big plate of pasta,” said the Italian. So they brought it to him, he ate it, and then they executed him.

Now it was the English fellow’s turn. “I want a big bowl of strawberries,” said the Englishman.

“Strawberries! It’s September. Strawberries aren’t in season for months!” exclaimed his captors.

“I can wait!”
