Upon arriving in Greece, a couple decided not to see the country the traditional touristy way but to hire a guide from one of the small villages. After finding a guide, the guide took them on a boat ride showing them the sights of Greece. After a while, they past a grove of fig trees.
After the tourists commented on the beauty of the trees, the guide says, "See all those trees? I planted every one of those trees. I nurtured every one of those trees. But do they call me Zorba the tree-planter? No."
The couple looked a little confused at his outrage but kept quiet.
After about 15 minutes, they past a nice village on the bank of the river. The tourists comment on the beauty of the village.
Again, the guide goes off. "See all those houses? I built every one of those houses. With these two hands alone, I built those houses. But do they call me Zorba the house-builder? NO."
The couple again looked confused and worried about the guide's outrage.
They didn't want to annoy him again. After about 30 minutes,they pass a small fleet of fishing boats. The husband comments on the boats.
"You see all those boats? I built those boats. With these two hands, I built every boat and not a one has sunk. But do they call meZorba the boat-builder? NO!!"
The tourists stay quiet until they see something which the guide could not have built. "Look at those lovely donkeys", says the wife.
The guide looks at them and says, "Oh, but you screw one donkey..."
