Once upon a time in China, not so long ago, just a few years back there lived a street dog called “Serial Pisser”. Doors, street posts, legs, kids, plants, flowers… the list has no exceptions, the dog thought it could piss everywhere and anywhere.
Some wise people ignored it, feeling pity because it was after all a dog and it would do what it always do. The dog took advantage of it and started getting into others’ home and pissed.
Some people got frustrated and pelted stone at the dog. Some pulled it’s tail. It barked at them and some people have to walk away with it’s stink. But that had no effect on the dog’s behaviour what so ever.
One fine day it entered a house and never returned. Poor dog didn’t notice the electric socket.
MORAL: When you know someone is a moron, do not waste your time. Be wise. Someday, morons will earn what they deserve for their deeds by themselves. We need not do anything. Just stay away from them.
A local Primary school was visited by the Government School Inspector who was there to check that teachers were performing well in their respective classes.
She was very impressed with one particular teacher. The Inspector noticed that each time the class teacher asked a question, every child in the class put up their hands enthusiastically to answer it. More surprisingly, whilst the teacher chose a different child to answer the questions each time, the answers were always correct.
The inspector was accompanied by the school Principal, who got struck by surprise. Because he knew that the class has average students whom he sure would not know the answers for all the questions.
But how did they answer every time? The puzzle Principal asked the teacher and got stunned by his smart thinking.
The children were instructed to ALL raise their hands whenever a question was asked. It did not matter whether they knew the answer or not.
If they did not know the answer, however, they would raise their LEFT hand.
If they knew the answer, they would raise their RIGHT hand.
The class teacher would choose a different child each time, but always the ones who had their RIGHT hand raised.
Moral: Would you call it Smart?
A very poor man lived with his wife.
One day, his wife, who had very long hair asked him to buy her a comb for her hair to grow well and to be well-groomed.
The man felt very sorry and said no. He explained that he did not even have enough money to fix the strap of his watch he had just broken. She did not insist on her request.
The man went to work and passed by a watch shop, sold his damaged watch at a low price and went to buy a comb for his wife. He came home in the evening with the comb in his hand ready to give to his wife.
He was surprised when he saw his wife with a very short haircut.
She had sold her hair and was holding a new watch band.
Tears flowed simultaneously from their eyes, not for the futility of their actions, but for the reciprocity of their love.

A Flight was flying through the clouds Suddenly it lost the balance.
Everyone started shouting in fear. But, a small girl kept playing with her toy.
After an hour, the flight was landed safely. A man asked the girl, “How could you play with your toy when everyone else was afraid?”
The small girl smiled and said, “My dad is the pilot, I knew he’ll land me safely!!!”
