One day a cat happens to grab hold of the rooster for its evening meal. She wanted, however, a good excuse for killing the bird.

 «I need to rid the world of you,» she told the rooster, «You constantly make your horrible noises throughout the night, interfering with men’s much-needed sleep. The world will be better off without you.»

«No,» said the rooster, «I crow for the good of men. I wake them up each morning when it is time for them to start work for the day, so that they may earn their living.»


«Ridiculous!» said the cat, and she ate him.

 One day, while my friend and I were traveling through Germany, we were very hungry but we didn’t have a lot of money. We decided to stop at a village market to get a few groceries.

I chose some cookies and went to the front counter to pay. Near the counter I saw some packaged cookies in a large bin. They looked good and were a lot cheaper than the ones I had in my hand, so I took them instead. We left the store and looked for a place where we could eat. We found a quiet place under a tree and we ate our sandwiches first, and then the cookies and We thought they were great.

«Let’s get these again,» I said. «They’re cheap and they really taste good.»

My friend can read some German, but I can’t, so I gave her the package so she could look for the brand name. She looked at it and then started to laugh.

«Why are you laughing?» I asked.

«Because they’re dog biscuits!» she said.
