There were 3 people going to the desert.  One man had a candy bar, the other had a jug of water, and the other had a car door.  The man with the candy bar asked the man with the jug of water, “Why do you have a jug of water?’.  He replied, “So if I get thirsty, I can drink it.  Then the man with the jug of water asked the man with the candy bar, “Why do you have a candy bar?” He replied, “So if I get hungry, I can eat it. Then they both asked 3rd guy..why the car door..?
