Humour Without Malice

This is a real incident from Trinidad. Seeing the success of a halal meat grocery store owner, a neighboring meat store owner with a different faith decides to introduce halal meat in his own store. He puts up a huge sign on his shop saying "Halal Meat, Found Here". Curious, some Muslims decide to find out how the meat was halal. When the owner was asked where he gets the halal meat from, he says that he slaughters the animal by himself. Surprised, the Muslism ask, and what do you say when you slaughter. He says, "I say 'Halal' and cut the animal".
