Pot of The Friend
Pot of The Friend :
A woman was asked to borrow a pot from her friend and handed it back the next morning together with a much smaller pot.
'It is the son of your pot and was born during the night,' she explained. The friend was delighted to accept this. A few days later, the woman borrowed the pot again, but this time she did not give it back. When the friend asked if she could have her pot back, the woman replied: 'It's dead.'
'A pot can't die,' her friend insisted.
'And why not?' the woman went on. 'If it can have 'a son, then it can surely die.'
