Dave Wallace sent this in. He says he got it from a friend whose first husband was Jewish. Beyond that, it’s origin is unknown.

A disappointed salesman of Coca-Cola returned from his assignment to Israel.

First poster: A man lying in the hot desert sand totally exhausted and fainting.
Second poster: The man is drinking Coca-Cola
Third poster: Our man is now totally refreshed.

“Terrific idea! That should have worked” said the friend.

“The hell it should have!” said the salesman. “But no one told me they read from right to left!”
