Can't we all just get along?
Two Arabs boarded a flight out of New York. One sat in the window seat
and the other sat in the middle seat. Just before takeoff, an American
got on and took the aisle seat. After takeoff, the American kicked his
shoes off, wiggled his toes and was settling in when the Arab in the
window seat said, I think I'll get up and get a beer." No problem," said
the American, "I'll get it for you."

While he was gone, one of the Arabs picked up the American's shoe and
spat in it. When he returned with the beer, the other Arab said, "That
looks good, I think I'll have one too." Again, the American obligingly
went to get it and while he was gone, the other Arab picked up the other
shoe and spat in it. When the American returned to his seat, they all
sat back and enjoyed the flight.

As the plane was landing, the American slipped his feet into his shoes
and knew immediately what had happened. He looked at the two Arabs and
asked, "Why does it have to be this way?" How long must this go on? This
fighting between our nations? This hatred? This animosity? This spitting
in shoes and pissing in beers?"

1. Huh?
I guess not? :shrug:

Actually, independant of the story, there are some people who absofreakinglutely should never remove their shoes on an airplane, or in a theatre, or anywhere where others are crowded together.
