Wife or Country?

The CIA is hiring and is considering three men to be hired. They bring them in to speak with the interviewer separately.

The first man comes in and sits down. The interviewer asks him:

“Do you love your wife?”

“Yes I do, sir.”

“Do you love your country?”

“Yes I do, sir.”

“What do you love more, your wife or your country?”

“My country, sir.”

“Okay. We brought in your wife. Take this gun and go into the next room and kill her.”

The man says to the interviewer, “I can’t do that. I guess that disqualifies me doesn’t it.”

The interviewer tells him yes but that the gun is filled with blanks. The agency would never ask you to do a thing like that. He is disappointed but hands the gun back, gets up and politely leaves.

The second guy comes in and sits down. The interviewer asks him the same questions, and the responses are the same.

The interviewer gives him the gun, and tells him to go kill his wife.

The guy goes into the room. All is quiet for about five minutes. He comes back, puts the gun down and says “I can’t do it. Am I disqualified?”

The interviewer tells him yes. The man leaves quietly.

The third guy comes in, the same thing happens. The interviewer gives him a gun, and tells him to go kill his wife.

The guy goes into the room, and BLAM! BLAM! BLAM! BLAM! BLAM! BLAM! This is followed by a bunch of crashing sounds that end after a few minutes.
The guy comes out of the room with his tie loosened, and puts the gun on the table.

The interviewer looks at him and asks “What happened?!?!”

“The gun you gave me was filled with blanks so I had to strangle her!”
