A foolish order

I was working in a photo store, which specializes in restoring old photographs.

One day, a lady brought an old picture of a man sitting behind cow milk, milking it.

“Can you fix this picture for me?” she asked.

“Sure, what would you like us to do?”

“Can you move the cow?”

I stared at her astonishingly and replied, “Move the cow?”

“Right. I want to know what my great-grandfather looked like. That’s him.” she pointed to the feet sticking out under the cow.

“I don’t think we can do that.”

“Just move the cow over, and we’ll be able to see his face.” She insisted.

“I’m sorry. We don’t have the technology to do that.”

“Well, I think I’ll just take this somewhere else.”

Guess what happened when there was a fisherman who threw a big fish back into the water and keep only that small one? It is an unusual incident, isn’t it?

One morning, a man was crossing a narrow bridge. When he saw a fisherman under him on the shady bank of the deep smooth river, he stopped to watch him quietly.

He saw that the fisherman took off the hook and caught a big fish. But he threw it back to the water. Then he put his hook and line in again. After a minute he caught rather big fish. Again, he threw it back into the river. Then the third time, he caught a small fish. He put it into his basket and started to get ready to go. The man on the bridge was very surprised, so he spoke to the fisherman. He asked why did he threw those beautiful big fishes back into the water and just kept only the small one.

The fisherman looked up and answered, “I only have a small frying pan.”

Snake in the Bath

How would you like to find a snake in your bath? A nasty one too!

We had just moved into a new house, which had been empty for so long that everything was in a terrible mess. Anna and I decided we would clean the bath first, so we set to and turned on the tap.

Suddenly to my horror, a snake’s head appeared in the plug-hole. Then out slithered the rest of his long thin body. He twisted and turned on the slippery bottom of the bath, spitting and hissing at us.

For an instant, I stood there quite paralyzed. Then I yelled for my husband, who luckily came running and killed the snake with the handle of a broom. Anna, who was only three at the time, was quite interested in the whole business. Indeed I had to pull her out of the way or she’d probably have leaned over the bath to get a better look!

Ever since then I’ve always put the plugin firmly before running the bathwater.

The Power of Tradition

The young husband clearly loved to cook and the dinners he served his new wife convinced her that she was indeed a lucky woman.

One thing puzzled her, though, and at last, she decided to enquire. “Oh, my dear. Why do you always cut a small piece off the end of the roast before you put it into the oven?”

“Well, to tell the truth. I do it because my mother always does it,” he replied.

At the next family gathering, the wife decided to satisfy her curiosity. She drew her mother in law aside and put the question to her. The older woman went a bit red, and replied, “Well, to tell the truth, I do it because my mother always does it.”

Undaunted, the wife waited until they paid a visit to eighty years old Nan. Knowing she’d enjoy hearing the story, she told her about her persevering quest to find the answer to the chopped off the roast.

“Incredible,” she croaked. “Imagine the two of them doing that!. ”Why, I only cut the piece off because my pan was too small.”

My Secret Alias

Hi, I’m Jack Banner. I’m a secret agent, but I’m here on vacation. Guess what happened to me. I almost forget my identity.

I arrived at the airport in the afternoon. The flight was not really good. So I only had a little sleep. Nobody picked me up, so I took a taxi to the hotel. I asked the driver to take me to the hotel my agent had reserved.

At the hotel, I went directly to the receptionist’s desk. I told her that I had reserved a room. After a minute she looked at me and said that nobody had reserved under Jack Baner. And the hotel was full. I thought there was something wrong. But what could I do?

Then I went to a public phone. I called my travel agent back in my country and told her about my problem. I was surprised to know that the problem was so simple. They reserved a room at this hotel under Johny Goodbye, my alias. I am a secret agent, remember?

I was so embarrassed. I shouldn’t have forgotten my alias.

I was from a big family. I had two aunts and one uncle whose house was so far away from my house. I was the oldest child and had three brothers and one sister. I had a lot of friends and I really loved them. Every day, after school, as the village kids, we gathered in the field of the village together. There, we could play soccer, play kite, play “Back through Door” game, play marbles, and play some other gams of children in the village. We were really close friends.

One day, Thinky, my cousin, said, “Hi Friends, you already know that my father is a smart farmer. He has created the scarecrow that makes birds never approached our rice again. They just watch from three miles away. They do not dare to take even a grain of rice,” he bragged. “That’s good,” said one of my friends. “It’s nothing,” says Pinky, a friend who also loved to brag. “My dad had created a so big-talk that created a so big-dark scarecrow that the birds returned all of the rice that they had picked some days ago.”
