Stupid Catherine :
When Stupid Catherine went out, she often forgot to close the door behind her. One day, she had to go out of the house to take some lunch for her husband, Joseph, who was always telling her: 'Don't forget the door.'
This time, Catherine thought deeply till an answer came to her. The best way not to forget to close the door was to take it with her. So, she took it off the hinges and heaved it up onto her back. Bu then, what could she do with the heavy lunch basket?"
“I know," she cried, “I will hang it on the door handle, so that the door has to carry it, not me."
