Two men lost in the desert, hours away from death, see a group of tents in the distance. Realising this may be their salvation, they stagger towards them.
Entering the first tent, one of them gasps at the Arab trader within: "water, water.."
The trader replies, "I'm sorry my friend, I've only got mixed fruit here, try next door."
So they enter the next tent, and the man gasps: "water, for the love of God."
The second trader replies, "I'm terribly sorry I've only got jelly. There might be water in the last tent, try there".
Reaching the last tent they crawl in. "Water, water" gasps the man. The trader, looking apologetic says, "I'm sorry I've only got custard here."
The men, now distraught, leave and stagger off into the desert. A little later, one man turns to the other and says, "Back there with those tents, that was a bit weird wasn't it."
The other bloke says, "Yes, it was a trifle bazaar."
