The Ten Commandments

Centuries ago, God came down, went to the Germans and said,
"I have Commandments that will help you to live better lives."
The Germans ask, "What are Commandments"
And the Lord says, "Rules for living."
"Can you give us an example?"
God says, "Thou shalt not kill."
"Not kill? We're not interested."
So God went to the Italians and said, "I have Commandments."
The Italians wanted an example and the Lord said "Thou shalt not steal."
"Not steal? We're not interested."
Next the Lord went to the French saying, "I have Commandments."
The French wanted an example and the Lord said, "Thy shalt not covet thy neighbours wife."
"Not covet thy neighbours wife? We're not interested."
God then went to the Jews and said, "I have Commandments."
"Commandments," said the Jews, "How much are they?"
"They're free."
"We'll take 10."
