Why Are You Eating The Grass?

One afternoon a rich man was riding in his limousine when he saw Driss and Thami along the roadside eating grass. Disturbed, he ordered his driver to stop and he got out to investigate.

He asked Driss, 'Why are you eating grass?'

'We don't have any money for food,' Driss replied. 'We have to eat grass.'

'Well, then, you can come with me to my house and I'll feed you,' the rich man said.

'But, sir, I have a wife and two children with me. They are over there, under that tree.'

'Bring them along,' the rich man replied.

Turning to Thami he announced, 'You come with us, also.'

Thami, in a pitiful voice then said, 'But sir, I also have a wife and six children with me.'

'Bring them all, as well,' the rich fellow answered.

They all climb in the car, which was no easy task, even for a car as large as the limousine. Once underway, Thami turned to the rich gent and said, 'Sir, you are too kind. Thank you for taking all of us with you.'

The rich man replied, 'Glad to do it. You'll really love my place. The grass is almost a metre high.'
