I went to the pub as a tennis ball the other night. I got served straight away.

When I was growing up there were a few things I thought were going to be more of a problem.  One was quicksand.  I never saw anywhere that there was actually any of the stuff.  Oh I am sure it exists, but never ever saw it.

The other is being lost in the Desert.  I'm nowhere near a desert.  I always carry water.  So I'm confused.

A man is walking through the desert, desperate for water, when he sees something far off in the distance.

Hoping to find water, he hurries towards the object, only to find a little old man sitting at a table with a bunch of ties laid out.
The parched wanderer asks, "Please, I'm dying of thirst, can I have some water?" 

The man at the table, nonchalantly, replies, "I don't have any water, but why don't you buy a tie? Here's one that goes nicely with your clothes."
The man, annoyed, replies, "I don't need a tie, I need water!"

"Well, don't be mad," says the little old man, "if you go over that hill and walk for about 3 miles, there's a restaurant there. They have all the water you need."
With no other option, the man thanks him and walks over the hill, desperately hoping for water.

Three hours later, the man trudges back to the little old man's place, and he is more desperate than ever: "Your brother won't let me in without a tie!"
