A Thief's Tale
The following took place in a small village somewhere in the Mediterranean, this past summer.
Late one night, a guy steals his neighbour's car and and drives out to the next village. There, he steals a goat. He starts driving back to his village, but he loses control of the car and he lands into a ditch. (No word if the goat had anything to do with this accident.) The guy gets out of the car and starts walking around in the country roads until he finds a tractor in a field. He steals the tractor and starts driving back to the ditch where he left the car and the goat. He gets lost on the way though, and on top of that, the tractor's engine dies and the tractor stops in the middle of the road. Our thief walks back to his village, steals another neighbour's tractor and goes back to the ditch where he left the car and the goat. When he gets to the ditch, he decides he'll use the tractor to get the car out of the ditch, all he needs is some rope. But he doesn't have any rope, so he walks to the next village, goes to the church, climbs up the bellfry, cuts the rope off the church bell, and takes the rope with him. He then walks back to the car, ties the rope between the car and the tractor and tries to move the car out of the ditch. But the car's engine has been damaged in the crash and one of the tires is also damaged, the car is undrivable. So our thief puts the goat in the tractor and drives the second stolen tractor back to his village. By then it's morning and unfortunately for him, another of his neighbours, who happens to be the owner of the very tractor he's driving, sees him driving the stolen tractor and holding a goat and calls the police who arrest the thief and fall over laughing with his confession. The goat was returned safely to her owner.
Moral of the story? I have no idea.
