636. backlash!

a student came to the guru and told him, “guru, people are quitting your school in droves.”

“why?” asked the guru.

“probably because, whenever they ask questions, you ask them for money.”

“why should i provide answers for free?”

“why should they pay money for nothing?”

“okay, that’s a good point. how about, instead of asking them to donate, i charge them for answers?”

“you already charge them to take classes!”

so the guru went to the tortoise, and he asked him, “how can i raise money for my school without upsetting people?”

the tortoise replied, “give me a head of lettuce and i’ll tell you.”

all questions are good questions. all answers are bad.
