Lessons From the Amish

An Amish man was seated next to an Italian on a flight  from London. After the  plane was airborne, drink orders were taken.
 
The Italian asked for a glass of wine, which was promptly decanted and placed before him.
 
The flight attendant then asked the Amish man if he would like a drink.
 
He replied in disgust, “I’d rather be savagely raped by a dozen whores than let alcohol touch my lips.”
 
The Italian then handed his drink back to the attendant and said,  “Me, too, I didn’t know we had a choice.”
