Hen and Golden Eggs
Once upon a time, a man and his wife had the good fortune to have a hen which laid a golden egg every day. Lucky though they were, they soon began to think they were not getting rich fast enough.
They imagined that if the bird be able to lay a golden egg every day, its insides must be full of golden eggs. And they thought that if they could get all that precious eggs at once, they would get mighty rich very soon. So the man and his wife decided to kill the bird.
However, upon cutting the hen open, they were shocked to find that its innards were like that of any other hen and there was no egg at all!
