Sri Lankan leaders on Holiday
Mahinda called Ranil into Temple Trees one day and said, 'Ranil, I have a
great idea! Shall we go to Hambantota for the week-end and have a little
rest and discussion?'
'Great idea'... Ranil agreed, 'How will we go about it?' asked Ranil.
'Well' said Mahinda, 'We'll get ourselves in to my helicopter and go to
Hambantota and stay at the best hotel there for a couple of days. But I want
to take my Alsatian dog because no body will be in Temple Trees when I'm not
So next day with the Alsatian dog at heel, they settled down at the best
hotel in Hambantota then after a refresh went direct to the pub, the dog by
'Good evening, may we have two doubles of your best Arrack ?' said Mahinda
to the barman. 'Good evening Mr. President', said the barman, 'Two doubles
of best Arrack is, coming up'.
Mahinda and Ranil stood leaning on the bar drinking their Arrack, chatting,
nodding now and again to those who came into the pub for a drink. The dog
lay quietly at their feet. All of a sudden, the door from the adjacent bar
opened and in came a man he walked up to the Alsatian, lifted its tail and
looked underneath, shrugged his shoulders and walked back to the other bar.
A few moments later, in came another man, walked up to the dog, lifted its
tail, looked underneath, scratched his head and went back to the other bar.
Over the course of the next half hour or so several other locals came in,
lifted the dog's tail and went away looking puzzled.
Eventually Mahinda and Ranil could stand it no longer and called the Barman
over. 'Tell me,' said Ranil, 'why did all those people come in and look
under the dog's tail like that? Is it a local custom in this town?'
'Good God no,' said the barman. 'It's just that someone went and told them
that there is an Alsatian dog in this bar with two arseholes'.
