once upon a time there lived a chief who liked to listen to stories. and he knew so many stories that sometimes he stopped the story-teller and finished the story himself. one day the chief sent his servants everywhere to find a good story-teller.
“our chief will give many presents to the man who will tell him the longest story in the world and make him laugh.”
the servants shouted in the streets. many people came to the chief and told him very long stories. they tried to make him laugh. but n-body could do that. the chief always said, “that is not the longest story and there is nothing to laugh at.”
once a boy came to the chief and said, “oh, my chief, let me try to tell you the longest story in the world and make you laugh.”
“now what can you tell us about your mogambo?” he asked.
“oh, my chief, he not only ate, but drank too, so he drank and then he ate and he ate and he ate.”
the story-teller said louder and louder, “and he ate and he ate and he ate.”
the chief looked at the boy and began to laugh.
“well, my boy, your story is the longest in the world! have a rest now! stop!”
and the young story-teller stopped his story, got many presents from the chief, climbed up on a camel and rode away with these words: “and he ate, and he ate, and he ate”
