Adventures of Goodboy – Episode 15



Goodboy had unparallel sense of wit. It was his sense of intelligence and wit that brought Goodboy so close to the King.
One day, Bediako was in quite a relaxed mood and was enjoying the company of Goodboy. Suddenly, the King spread his hands and noticed that there were no hair in his palms. 
He asked, “Goodboy, Can you tell me why there is no hair in my palms?”
Goodboy gave a pleasing answer, “Nana, the reason is very simple. Everyday you donate generously to the poor and needy people with both of your hands. How can hair grow on such giving palms?”
Bediako was pleased with his answer.
However he decided to pull his leg for giving such a pleasing answer, so he asked him again – “If it’s so, then why is there no hair in your palm?”
Goodboy at once replied, “Nana, reason is very simple. Hair in my palm have vanished due to continuous acceptance of gifts and rewards from you.” The clever answer of Goodboy made the King more eager to outfit Goodboy.
So he asked again, “Now you must tell me why there is no hair on the hands of other courtiers?”
Goodboy was too smart to out wit, he promptly answered, “Your majesty, the answer is obvious. Whenever I get rewards from you, the other courtiers rub their hands out of disappointment and envy. The continuous rub does not allow the hair to grow on their hands.”
