  1. A Funny Story
    There was once a King who had a servant, whom the king considered to be very simple. The servant, however was not as simple as he looked. One day the king got very ill, and the wide men of the country attended him. They told him he would die very soon. He said the before he would die he would make his will. He offered his servant his golden staff and said to him. ''If ever you meet a man as simple, simple as yourself give him this staff''. Whereupon the servant handed him back the staff.
