The Parable of the Jewish Samurai

Posted on the 22 October 2015 by Scribe Project @ascribeproject

Once upon a time, a powerful Emperor of the Rising Sun advertised for a new
Chief Samurai.

After a year, only three applied for the job:  a Japanese, a Chinese, and a
Jewish Samurai.

“Demonstrate your skills!” commanded the Emperor.
The Japanese Samurai stepped forward, opened a tiny box, and released a fly.
He drew his samurai sword & *Swish! * The fly fell to the floor, neatly
Divided in two!

“What a feat!” said the Emperor? “Number Two Samurai, show me what you do.”

The Chinese Samurai smiled confidently, stepped forward and opened a tiny
Box, releasing a fly. He drew his samurai sword & * Swish! * Swish!

The fly fell to the floor neatly quartered.
“That is skill!” nodded the Emperor.  “How are you going to top that,
Number three Samurai?”

The Jewish Samurai, Obi-wan Cohen, stepped forward, opened a tiny box
Releasing one fly, drew his samurai sword and  *Swoooooosh! * Flourished his
Sword so mightily that a gust of wind blew through the room.  But the fly
Was still buzzing around!

In disappointment, the Emperor said,”What kind of skill is that?  The fly
Isn’t even dead.”

“DEAD?”  Replied the Jewish Samurai.  “Dead is easy”.

“But circumcised?”
