Humour — 08 February 2012

A rich Arab Sheik was admitted to St Vincent’s Hospital for heart surgery…

…but prior to the surgery the doctors required some of his blood type in case a blood transfusion was needed.

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 and a large amount of cash.

A few weeks 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. The Scotsman was shocked that the Arab this time did not reciprocate the kind of gesture he anticipated.

He phoned the Arab and asked him: “I thought you would be generous again and would give me another BMW, diamonds and money… but you only sent me a thank-you card!”

To this the Arab replied: “Aye, but Laddie, I now have Scottish blood in me veins.”
