Humour Without Malice

David and Wilson were lost in desert. They were dying of thirst when they came upon an oasis, and there was a mosque. David to Wilson, "Look! There is a mosque, lets pretend we are Muslims, otherwise we'll not get any food or water. I am going to call myself 'Ahmad'." Wilson refused to change his name and said: "My name is Wilson and I will never pretend to be other than what I am!". The imam of the mosque received both of them well and asked for their names. David: "I am Ahmad." Wilson: "I am Wilson". Imam turned to his helpers and said, "Bring some food for Wilson only." And then Imam turned towards David and said, "Ramadhan Mubarak, Brother Ahmad!".
