The Raven and the Swan
======================

A RAVEN saw a Swan and desired to secure for himself the same beautiful plumage. Supposing that the Swans splendid white color arose from his washing in the water in which he swam, the Raven left the altars in the neighborhood where he picked up his living, and took up residence in the lakes and pools. But cleansing his feathers as often as he would, he could not change their color, while through want of food he perished.

Change of habit cannot alter Nature.


The Rain
========

A monkey, a rhinoceros, a kangaroo and a horse were all under the same umbrella. Who got wet?
Nobody, it was not raining.


The Questioning
===============

At the Police Station, the criminal is being questioned:
-- Where do you live?
-- In my brother's house.
-- And where does your brother live?
-- With me.
-- And were the hell do you both live?
-- We live together.
