CAT AND THE LIVER
After the Hodja got the recipe for liver from his friend, he bought again some liver and
because he liked it very much, he wanted to eat it often.
But everytime when he brought livers he couldn't eat it, because his wife said that the
cat took the liver and fled away.
One day the Hodja became angry and said:
“Woman, I brought liver! Where is it?”
“Oh”, said his wife. “The silly cat took it and fled away.”
At the same time the cat was in the room. The Hodja caught
it, brought a steelyard and weighted the cat. Then he said:
“That is exactly two kilos. And the liver which I brought was also two kilos. Now tell
me: If that is the liver where is my cat, if that is the cat, then I want my liver.”
