The Greedy man and the Golden egg.

in #norway6 years ago (edited)


A Hen used to laid a golden egg every morning, for a very poor man, the man was very happy for this at the beginning.

Everything has changed when he said to himself “where is this golden egg coming from?”. He thought that there are many more golden egg inside the Hen.

He said to himself “this Hen is being lazy and doesn’t want to give me more golden eggs, what can I do to make her laid more and more!”.

He thought if he give the Hen more food like worms and seeds, the Hen will give him more golden egg.

He started given the Hen more food, but the Hen never gave more than one golden egg. The Hen became very fat and he said to himself if he cut her stomach he will get all the eggs and instead of waiting everyday for one egg he will take all the eggs one time.

Next morning he decided to kill the Hen, took a knife and cut her head the chopped her stomach to find the golden egg, but he didn’t find any eggs nor golden eggs.
The man started crying and said “what a bad luck, where are my golden eggs!!!!”.
This greedy man lost everything no more golden or Hen that laid normal eggs.
