Funny story - A fair share story


Abunawas story - A fair share story
Funny story
The old judge had been sick for three months. Many doctors tried to cure him, but he did not get better. One day he called his son, Abunawas.
Funny story
“Abu, my time will come soon,” he said to his son. “King Aaron El Rosyid will appoint you to be my successor. Take it, if you think you can be a good judge. If think you can’t, leave ot.”
Funny story
Not long after that, Abu’s father pass away. Abunawas was so sad and confused. He was sad because he lost his father. He was confused because he did not want to replace his father’s position, but he had not had any good reason to refuse it yet.
Funny story
One day he saw children playing with hobby-horses made of the midrib of banana leaf. He made one and joined them. They ran around happily. Finally, they went to the palace with their hobby-horses. Some ministers saw Abunawas among the children. They thought that Abu was mad for hid father had just died. They reported this to the king.
Funny story
The king did not believe them, ao he called A bu to come to the palace. When Abu came at the gate of the palace, a guard stopped him. “Hey, listen,” said the guard. “I’ll let you in if you promise me something.”
“Promise you what?” Abu asked.
Funny story
“Promise to give me half of anything that the king will give you
“Ok, no problem,” said Abu. The guard let him pass the gate into the palace.
When Abu was in front of the king, he bowed but did not say anything. The king asked him.
“Abu, will you be a judge like your father?”
Funny story
Abu did not answer. The king became impatient and said loudly.
“Hey, Abu! Do you hear me?”
Abunawas did not say a word but began dancing. The king was then very angry and thought that Abu was crazy. He asked one of his guard to beat Abu with a rattan stick twenty times. Abu was in pain but he tried not to cry or say a word.
Funny story
“Now, go away,” said the king. Abu left the palace and began to beat the guard ten times. He then left him for home.
Funny story
The guard reported this to the king. The king was angry and ordered Abu to come to the palace again.
“why did you beat this guard?” asked the king.
Funny story
Calmly Abu answered, “Yesterday, before I passed the gate he stopped me and made me to promise something.”
Funny story
“What did he want you to promise?”
“He wanted me to give him half of anything that Your Majesty would give me. And yesterday you gave me twenty beats on my back. So I gave him share, ten beats on his back. It’s fair, isn’t it?”
