There is a village, and in the village everybody is rich. They all have beautiful houses and nice clothes. They are good at business. One day a young man comes to the village. He talks with a merchant. "Look," he says. "You are all good businessmen. What is the secret?" "The secret is this," answered the merchant. "We eat a lot of fish, and the fish is good for our brain. It makes us clever." "I see," says the young man, "and what is the name of the fish?" "I dont know," says the merchant. "But if you give me ten pounds, I can send you some." The young man thinks it is a good idea. So he gives the merchant ten pounds and tells him his address. Soon the young man receives a box. In the box there are three fish.
After about a month the young man meets the merchant again. "Thank you for the fish," he says, "but listen. Ten pounds is very expensive for just three fish." "Ah, you see!" says the merchant. "The fish is beginning to have an effect. You are becoming clever!"
