At a prominent Parisian brothel, the madam opened the ornate gilded door to see an elderly Jewish man. His clothes were dishevelled and he looked needy.
"Can I help you?" the madam asked.
"I'm here for Natalie," the old man replied.
"Sir, Natalie's one of our most expensive ladies, perhaps someone else..."
"No, I must see Natalie."
Just then Natalie appeared and announced to the old man she charged $1000 per visit.
The man never blinked and reached into his pocket and handed her ten $100 bills. The two went up to a room for an hour whereupon the man calmly left.
The next night he appeared again demanding Natalie. Natalie explained no-one had ever come back two nights in a row and there were no discounts. It was still $1000.
Again the old man took out the money, the two went up to the room and he calmly left an hour later.
When he showed up the third consecutive night, no-one could believe it.
Again he handed Natalie the money and up to the room they went.
At the end of the hour Natalie questioned the old man.
"No-one's ever used my services three nights in a row," she said. "Where are you from?"
"I'm from Vienna."
"Really?" replied Natalie. "I have a sister who lives there."
"Yes, I know," said the old man. "She gave me $3000 to give to you."
