A man is stranded in the desert dying of thirst. As he crawls along he spots something on the horizon. As he gets closer, he sees the objects are market stalls.

He crawls to the final stall and pleads for water. The stall holder tells him he only sells whipped cream.
The man cries in anguish and asks why the market only sells jelly, cold custard and whipped cream but no water.
