Three men were stranded on an island. One was French, one was Italian, and one was from New York. Not long after, the natives on the island found them and decided to skin them and make them into canoes. After arguing and negotiating, the natives decided that each of them could recieve one thing of their choice before death.
After clearing the fact that they could wish for anything, they decided the Italian would go first.
"I want the finest Italian dished served today!"
The little indian men brought him some fantastic raviole, and he ate it immediately. Then they then skinned him and made him into a canoe.
The French man was next...
"I want a 1876 cabernet of the finest quality!"
So the natives brought him the wine, and he drank, and they skinned him and made him into a canoe.
Last up was the New Yorker...
"I want a fork!"
So the natives brought him a fork.
The new yorker took the fork and started stabbing himself with it and shouted... "SCREW YOUR CANOE!!!"
