A Dallas Fan, a Redskins fan and a Gaints fan were all in Saudi Arabia walking the street and seeing the sights.
All of a sudden Saudi police rushed over and arrested them. The they had committed the severe offense of not bowing to the Sheik, so for this terrible crime they were sentenced to death!
However, after many months and with the help of very good lawyers, they were able to successfully appeal their sentence down to life imprisonment. By a stroke of luck, it was a Saudi national holiday the day their trial finished, and the extremely benevolent Sheik decided they could be released after receiving just 20 lashes each of the whip.
As they were preparing for their punishment, the Sheik suddenly said, "It's my first wife's birthday today, and she has asked me to allow each of you one wish before your whipping."
The Gaints fan was first in line, so he thought about this for a while and then said, "Please tie a pillow to my back." This was done, but the pillow only lasted 10 lashes before the whip went through. The Gaints fan had to be carried away bleeding and crying with pain when the punishment was done.
The Dallas fan was next up and after watching the scene, said "All Right! Please fix two pillows on my back." But even two pillows could only take 15 lashes before the whip went through again, sending the Dallas fan out crying like a little girl.
The Redskins fan was the last one up, but before he could say anything, the Sheik turned to him and said, "You support the greatest team in the world, your supporters are some of the most loyal football fans in the world. For this, you may have two wishes!"
"Thanks, your most Royal highness," the Redskins fan replies. "In recognition of your kindness, my first wish is that you give me not 20, but 100 lashes."
"Not only are you an honorable, handsome and powerful man, you are also very brave," the Sheik says with an admiring look on his face. "If 100 lashes is what you desire, then so be it. And your second wish? What is it to be?" the Sheik asks.
"Tie the whiney Dallas fan to my back."
