Big Cabbage

2006-07-13 21:30

  Two shop boys, Joe and Henry, one day passed by one of the village gardens.

  “Look at that,” said Joe, “what a beautiful big cabbage.”

  “That's nothing,” said Henry, who was something of a boaster. “In my travels in foreign lands I once saw a cabbage bigger than this garden.”

  Joe, who was a coppersmith, commented: “It must have been some cabbage. But once upon a time I remember I had to help build a copper that was even bigger than the church.”

  “My goodness,” said Henry, “what on earth was it to be used for?

  Joe replied: “To boil your cabbage.”

  Henry became very mortified and said: “Now I understand what you mean. Usually you always tell the truth and if you have spoken to me in this manner I realize that it is for my good and that you want me to overcome the habit of exaggerating and of telling lies.”
