Pappettan bends the sacred rule

If you are wondering who Pappettan is, click on this link and find out.

Pappettan goes to a restaurant in Paris with his French friend. After going over the menu, Pappettan orders a dish containing beef.

French Friend: *surprised* Do you know this contains...err..beef?

Pappettan: *calmly* Yes.

French Friend: *bewildered, takes a moment to recompose himself* It is cow...

Pappettan: *smiles*

French Friend: You are Hindu?

Pappettan: Yes, I am.

French Friend: *more confused* Cow is sacred for you. But you eat beef?

Pappattan: Indian cows are sacred. French cows aren't.
