Two beggars are sitting side by side on a street in Rome, Italy.

One has a Cross in front of him; the other one is holding the Star of David.

Many people go by, look at both beggars, but only put money into the hat of the

beggar sitting behind the Cross.

The Pope comes by and stops to watch the throngs of people giving money to the

beggar who holds the Cross while none give to the beggar holding the Star of

David.

Finally, the Pope approaches the beggar with the Star of David and says, "My poor

fellow, don't you understand? This is a Catholic country; this city is the

seat of Catholicism. People aren't going to give you money if you sit there

with a Star of David in front of you, especially when you're sitting beside

a beggar who is holding a Cross. In fact, they would probably give

more money to him just out of spite."

The beggar with the Star of David listened to the Pope, smiled, and turned to

the beggar with the Cross and said, "Moishe, look who's trying to teach the

Goldstein brothers about marketing!"
