The president of Chase Manhattan Bank, after being humiliated by an old
woman, decides he should take a vacation/business trip. Since the
president has heard about how fun Taipei is, he decides to visit the
offices there. He books two tickets, one for him and one for his
After his arrival in Taipei, the president receives an urgent message
from headquarters that the richest man in Taiwan wants to put all his
money into a Chase Manhattan account. Since the account would be
quite substantial, the president decides to meet personally with the
The next day, the president and his secretary go to meet the Taiwanese
business at a really expensive restaurant. Throughout the dinner, the
president tries to bring up the subject of opening the accounts for the
Taiwanese businessman. However, the prospective client only seems to
interested in the president's secretary. After the dinner, the businessman
asks the secretary to spend the rest of the evening seeing the sights
Taipei with him. Not wishing to offend the prospective client, the
orders his secretary to spend some time with the man. He tells her
she must be diplomatic and under no circumstances is she to insult the
man by rejecting him outright.
After going to a dance club for a few hours, the businessman takes the
secretary aside. As he holds her hand and looks her straight in the
eyes, he tells her that he loves her. Then, he gets on his knees and
asks her to marry him.
Naturally, the secretary is quite taken aback. However, she remembers
what her boss told her. Don't reject the guy outright. So, she tries

So, after a few minutes, the woman says to the man "I will only marry
you under three conditions. First, I want my engagement ring to be a
carat diamond ring, with a matching 200 carat diamond tiara.

"No problem!! I buy. I buy."
Realizing that her first condition was too easy, the woman says to the
man "I want you to build me a 100 room mansion in New York. As a
vacation home, I want a chateau built in the middle of the best wine
country in France."
The man pauses for awhile. He whips out his cellular phone, calls some
brokers in New York, then he calls some brokers in France. He looks at
the woman, nods his head and says "Okay, okay. I build, I build."
Realizing that she has one last condition, the secretary knows that
she'd better make this a good one. She takes her time to think and
finally, she gets an idea. A sure-to-work condition. She squints her
looks at the man and says, rather coldly, "Since I like to have sex, I
want the man I marry to have a 12-inch penis."
The man seems a bit disturbed. He cups his face with his hands and
rests his elbows on the table. All the while, he's muttering something
in Chinese. Finally, after what seemed like forever, the man shakes
head, looking real sad, says to the woman "I cut. I cut."
