Two blokes are lost in the Sahara desert.  They're desperate for water,
but just as they think they're about to die, they crest a dune and see a
village where market day is in full swing.  They go to the first stall in
the market and ask if they can buy some water.  "No," replies the Bedouin
stall owner, "I only sell fruit."  So they go to the next stall and again
they ask for water.  "Sorry," says the merchant, "But I only sell custard."
"Custard?" one of the blokes says to the other, "What kind of place is
this?"  By now desperate, they go to the next stall, only to be told,
"Sorry, but I only sell jelly."  Hearing this, the second bloke turns to
the first and says, "This is a trifle bazaar."
