There was a cook named Chico. His master had visitors for dinner and Chico was told to fry a crane. Chico felt hungry and so he ate one leg of the crane. At dinner time, when the master saw a missing leg, he shouted, “Chico! Why does this crane have only one leg?” Chico replied, “Sir, haven’t you seen cranes before? They only have one leg!” To teach Chico a lesson, next morning, his master took him to the pond nearby.

Chico exclaimed, “Look, Master! Cranes have only one leg!” The master clapped his hands and all the cranes uncurled their other legs and flew away. “You fool! Did you see they have two legs!” cried the master.

Clever Chico replied, “Sir, why didn’t you clap your hands at the table? You would have got two legs!”

The Bees and the Beekeeper

  Once, there was a man who kept many Bees on his farm. His farm had many beehives that contained honeycombs.
One day, when the Beekeeper was away, a thief crept into his farm and stole all the honeycombs. Most of the Bees had gone to the meadow to collect honey. The thief took out the honeycombs and put them away in his basket. The Bees that were in the beehive did not sting the thief.
After a few hours, the Beekeeper returned and went to check on the beehives.
Alas! The beehives were empty “Who could have taken the honeycombs?” he said.
The Beekeeper was confused and looked around to see if anyone was there

By evening, the Bees returned from the pastures and found the Beekeeper near their beehive. The Bees saw there were no honeycombs! So they stung the Beekeeper, fiercely.

The Beekeeper said to the Bees in anger, “You worthless creatures! You let the man who stole your honeycombs get away with no punishment. I take care of you and you show me your anger!”

We need to know who our friend is, and who our enemy is.
