The landlord’s assistant leaned back in his chair, and with sparkles of jist in his eyes he said: “Now I will tell you a joke.
A farmer in the countryside holds pigs. One day a man comes along and asks: “What do you feed your pigs good man?” “Oh, well, the rest bits,” the farmer answers, “peels of potatoes and rotten vegetables, as well as old coffee drab.” “This cannot be,” the man says, “as I’m an inspector of health, I will impose a ban on these practices.”
Months later, another man visits the farmer. “What do you feed your pigs, farmer?” he asks. “Well,” says the farmer, “first I give them caviar, after which I serve them salmon, with champagne by the side.” “This cannot be,” says the second man, “as I’m an inspector of economy, I will ban these wasteful practices.”
Later again, enters a third man, who asks the farmer, “what do you feed your pigs?” “Well,” the farmers says: “I give them 10 euros, and then they can buy whatever they like!”“
And with a laughter the landlord’s assistant hands me ten euros to make copies of the new flat’s keys.
