320. a deal with the tyger

the guru was fishing in his boat on the lake when the tyger appeared on the bank.

the guru asked, “do you plan to eat me when i row ashore?”

the tyger said, “yes.”

the guru said, “how about i give you all the fish i caught today, and in exchange, you spare my life?”

the tyger agreed to this.

the guru rowed ashore and got out of his boat.

the tyger said, “where are the fish?”

the guru said, “today i caught nothing, and i give it all to you.”

the tyger stared at the guru for a long time before he said, “go.”
