A hole in the ground in
In Homs, there was a big hole in the ground. Everyday people would fall
into this hole and injure or even kill themselves. So the mayor of Homs
sent three ministers to visit the hole and attempt to find a solution. The
first minister said: “We'll just park an ambulance by the hole, and when
someone falls in, we’ll just drive them to the hospital.”
The second minister said: “No, No... The nearest hospital is over an hour
away. They will die before they get to the hospital. We should just build
a hospital here next to the hole. This way, when someone falls in, the
hospital is right here.”
The third minister said, “No, No... Why do you want to spend all that
money to build a hospital just because of a hole? It will be much cheaper
to fill up this hole here and dig another hole next to the one already
standing an hour away.”

receiving, rushes to her son’s school to talk to the teacher. She says to

math?” The teacher replies: “Right now, we are learning addition.” The

son of a bitch is four?’” When the teacher stops laughing he explains:

A Homsi Commits Suicide:
Three construction workers in Lebanon would eat their home-prepared lunch
together everyday on the scaffold: an Egyptian, a Sri Lankan, and a Homsi.
Everyday, it was the same meal for each of them. The Egyptian would
complain: “Oh no, toomieh again!”
The Sri Lankan would say: “Oh no, fried roaches again.” The Homsi: “Oh no,
basal akhdar we khebez again!” Day in and day out, the same meal, the same
complaints, until one day, the Egyptian says: “Oh no, toomieh again, I
can’t take it anymore,” and he jumps off the scaffold to his death.
The Sri Lankan: “Oh no, fried roaches again,” and jumps to his death.
And similarly, the Homsi goes: “Oh no, basal akhdar we khebez again! I
can't take it anymore,” and so he jumps off the scaffold to his death. The
next day, at a triple funeral, the wives are weeping together. The
Egyptian’s wife says: “If I only knew he could not care anymore for
toomieh, I could have
prepared for him a different meal.”
The Sri Lankan, similarly, says: “If I only knew, I could have given him
fried rats, or other insects.”
The Homsi’s wife says: “I do not understand why he killed himself. He used
to prepare his own lunch.”

department store. She asked the salesman: “How much is that TV?” He

got her hair dyed and came back. Again, when she inquired about the TV, he
replied that he wouldn't sell it to her. So she bought a hat and
sunglasses and a fake moustache. The man said: “I am STILL not going to
sell it to you!” Taking off her glasses she asked him: “How do you know
The salesman responded: “Because that’s not a TV. It’s a microwave.”

Heaven?” The Homsi student replied: “No, my mother told me to come
directly home after school is over.”

First Class Homsi:
A Homsi boards a plane to Lebanon with a ticket for the economy section.
He looks at the seats in economy and then looks ahead to the first class
seats. Seeing that the first class seats appear to be much larger and more
comfortable, he moves forward to the last empty one. The flight attendant
checks his ticket and tells the Homsi that his seat is in economy. The
Homsi replies: “Don’t think you can fool me because I’m a Homsi, I’m going
to sit here!”
Flustered, the flight attendant goes to the cockpit and informs the
captain of the Homsi problem. The captain goes back and tells the Homsi
that his assigned seat is in economy.
Again, the Homsi replies: “Don’t think you can trick me because I’m a
Homsi, I'm going to sit here all the way to Lebanon.”
The captain doesn't want to cause a commotion, and so returns to the
cockpit to discuss the Homsi with the co-pilot. The co-pilot says that he
knows many Homsis and that he can take care of the problem. He then goes
back and briefly whispers something into the Homsi’s ear.
The Homsi immediately gets up, says: “Thank you so much,” hugs the
co-pilot, and rushes back to his seat in the economy section. The pilot
and flight attendant, who were watching with rapt attention, together ask
the co-pilot what he had said to the Homsi. He replies: “I just told him
that the first class section isn’t going to Lebanon.”

A Syrian & a Homsi (what a
A Syrian and a Homsi were out for a night in a Lebanese town. As they were
walking by the fence of a path, they saw a small Sri Lankan maid who, upon
seeing them, freaked out and tripped and fell over the fence and got her
head stuck between the railings of the fence.
The Syrian, seeing this, ran to her and lifted up her little skirt, bent
and fixed her strongly against the fence and “took advantage” of her from
the rear while she was screaming uselessly in vain.
The Syrian then turned to his Homsi countryman and said: “Come-on, it’s
your turn now.”
The Homsi started crying angrily; so, the Syrian, surprised, asked: “Why
are you crying, comrade? What’s wrong? Don’t worry, all of our home-folks
do this often because here in Lebanon we have a carte blanche!” But the
Homsi wept and cried out sadly: “But my head won't fit between the
railings of the fence!”
A learned Homsi was applying
for work in Lebanon. He filled the required information in the spaces next
Then he came to the space next to SALARY EXPECTED, and the Homsi wrote:

convertible as it begins to rain heavily. All of the sudden, he screams

another Homsi on the opposite bank. “Yoo-hoo!” he shouts, “How can I get
to the other side?” The second Homsi looks up the river then down the
river and shouts back, “You ARE on the other side.”
A police officer stops a Homsi for speeding and asks him very nicely if he
could see his license. He replied in a huff, “What are you guys stupid?
Just yesterday you take away my license and then today you expect me to
show it to you!”
Two Hosmis are walking down
the street. One reaches into his pocket, finds a small mirror, so he picks
it up and looks into it. “This picture looks like someone I know” he says.

There was a Homsi who was
having financial troubles so he decided to kidnap a child and demand a
ransom. He went to a local park, grabbed a little boy, took him behind a
tree and wrote this note: “I have kidnapped your child. Leave $10,000 in a
plain brown bag behind the big oak tree in the park tomorrow at 7 A.M.
Signed, The Homsi.”
He pinned the note inside the little boy’s jacket and told him to go
straight home. The next morning, he returned to the park to find the
$10,000 in a brown bag behind the big oak tree, just as he had instructed.
Inside the bag was the following note: “Here is your money. I cannot
believe that one Homsi would do this to another!”
Three dead bodies turn up at
the mortuary, all with very big smiles on their faces. The coroner calls
the police to tell them what has happened.

mistress. Hence the enormous smile, Inspector,” says the Coroner.
“Second body: Irishman, 25, won a thousand pounds on the lottery, spent it
all on whisky. Died of alcohol poisoning, hence the smile.”
The Inspector asked, “What of the third body?”
“Ah,” says the coroner, “this is the most unusual one. He’s a Syrian from
Homs, 30, struck by lightning.”
“Why is he smiling then?” inquires the Inspector.
“Thought he was having his picture taken.”

"Good idea," said the other.
At a pharmacy, a Homsi woman asked to use the infant scale to weigh the
baby she held in her arms. The clerk explained that the device was out for
repairs, but said that she would figure the infant's weight by weighing
the woman and baby together on the adult scale, then weighing the mother
alone and subtracting the second amount from the first.
"That won't work," responded the Homsi woman. "I'm not the mother, I'm the
