Bad Connection

Benny is on holiday in Israel and is staying at the 5 star Ritz Hotel. On his second morning, his bedroom phone rings. Benny picks it up and the hotel operator says to him, "Mr. Levy, I have a Melvyn Elstein on the line who says he's your brother-in-law. He wants to talk to you urgently."

"So put him through already," says Benny.

"Benny, I need your help," cries Melvyn. "I'm in trouble with the IRS. They say I owe them $25,000 and if I don't pay them by the end of the day, they will sue me. But I don't have enough money in my bank. Could you please send them $25,000 on my behalf right away?"

"I can't hear you Melvyn," says Benny, "I think something must be wrong with the hotel phone."

"Benny," shouts Melvyn, "I desperately need you to send me $25,000 right away."

"I'm sorry Melvyn," says Benny, "I still can't hear you."

"But Mr. Levy," interrupts the hotel operator, "I can very clearly hear Mr. Elstein."

"Then why don't you help Mr. Elstein and you send him the $25,000?"
