Two Jewish men, Barnabas and Hosea were sitting in a restaurant in Lagos. Barnabas asked Hosea, ‘‘Are there any Jewish people of our faith born and raised in Nigeria?”
Hosea replied, “I don’t know, let’s just ask the waiter.”
When the waiter came by, Hosea asked him, “Are there any Nigerian Jews?”
The waiter said, “I don’t know, let me ask the cook, “He returned from the kitchen in a few minutes and said, “No sir, no Nigerian Jews.”
Hosea wasn’t really satisfied with that and asked, “Are you absolutely sure?”
The waiter, realising he was dealing with foreigners, gave the expected answer, “Let me check again,” and went back into the kitchen.
While the waiter was away in the kitchen, Barnabas said, “I find it hard to believe that there are no Jews in Nigeria. Our people are scattered everywhere.”
The waiter returned and said, “The cook says there is no Nigerian Jews.”
“Are you certain?” Hosea asked once again, “I just can’t believe there are no Nigerian Jews!”
“Listen, I asked EVERYONE,” replied the frustrated waiter, “All we have is Mango Jews, Pineapple Jews, Orange Jews, Coconut Jews and Tomato Jews! No Nigerian Jew!”
