The madam opened the brothel door to see an elderly Jewish man. His clothes
were all disheveled and he looked needy. "Can I help you?" the madam asked.
"I want Natalie," the old man replied. "Sir, Natalie is one of our most
expensive ladies, perhaps someone else..." "No, I must see Natalie."
Just then Natalie appeared and announced to the old man that she charges
$1,000 per visit. The man never blinked and reached into his pocket and
handed her ten $100 bills. The two went up to a room for an hour whereupon
the man calmly left.
The next night he appeared again demanding Natalie. Natalie explained that
no one had ever come back two nights in a row and that there were no
discounts... it was still $1,000. Again the old man took out the money,
the two went up to the room and he calmly left an hour later.
When he showed up the third consecutive night, no one could believe it. Again
he handed Natalie the money and up to the room they went. At the end of the
hour Natalie questioned the old man: "No one has ever used my services
three nights in a row... where are you from?" The old man replied, "I am
from Minsk." "Really?" replied Natalie, "I have a sister who lives there."
"Yes; I know," said the old man. "She gave me $3,000 to give to you."
