Three men embarked on a journey to retrieve a family heirloom which had mysteriously disappeared. They travelled tirelessly for three days and three nights.
As they laid under an enormous tree, to catch their breath, they were captured by warriors who presented them before their King.
Unfortunately for the three, their capture had come at a time when the gods of this strange land required human sacrifice, to guarantee another year of bumper harvest.
They wailed and pleaded with the king to release them. He agreed on the condition that, each was to perform an act, should he succeed, only then would he be set free.
Each was to gather ten fruits of the same kind. And present it before the king, upon that act, further instructions would be given.
The first came before the king with ten apples, he was asked to insert each of the ten apples into his anus, without showing any expression. Should he fail, death!
1, 2, 3_ he winced in pain. Immediately he was sent away to be killed
Then came the second, with ten blue berries. He was given the same instructions
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9_ he burst into laughter. Straight away, he was also sent to be executed.
When the first ghost met the second ghost, he asked “my brother why did you laugh, you were so close?
The second ghost replied “I couldn’t help it, just as I was about to finish, I saw the third guy coming with pineapples”.
