"Mohamed, we caught you on our side of the border with grenades, knives, and a screwdriver. What was your plan?"
"I was going to use the grenade to kill a sheep, the knife to cut it up, and the screwdriver was going to be my fork. We have no forks in Gaza, due to the occupation."
"Are you telling us the truth?"
"Of course, why would I lie to you?"
"Ok then. We're returning you to Gaza, through the hole in the fence that you cut. Please don't do this again as we might have shot at you, even though you were just looking for dinner."
"Oh thank you! I shall never try to do such a thing again. You can trust me!"

"You know, the Arab couldn't find his way back to the place in the fence where he crossed. Couldn't that mean he popped up on our side from an active tunnel and doesn't want us to find out about it? Shouldn't we alert somebody or go looking for it?"
"Oh Zvi, don't you want to get back to base to watch American Idol? Or Keeping Up with the Kardashians? We'll never make it if we're driving all over the damned desert all night! C'mon, Mohamed was telling the truth- he told us so!"
"Well, if you say so, Major."
