A Georgian appeared in the door and replied sympathetically, "I am sorry, sir, but I have no water. However, would you like to buy a tie?" With this, he brandished a collection of exquisite silken neckwear.

The restaurateur, dressed in a costly tuxedo, appeared at the door
and enquired, "May I help you sir?"
