Akpors the Carpenter

Akpors the Carpenter, returning home with his week’s wages,mwas accosted by an armed robber, Terrificjo, on a deserted street. “Take my money,” said Akpors, “but do me a favour: “Shoot a bullet through my hat otherwise my wife won’t believe I was robbed.” Terrificjo obliged. He threw Akpors’ hat into the air and put a bullet through it. “Let’s make it look as if I ran into a gang of robbers,” said Moishe, “otherwise my wife will call me a coward! Please shoot a number of holes through my coat.” So Terrificjo shot a number of holes through the carpenter’s coat. “And now…” continued AKpors. “Sorry,” interrupted Terrificjo, “No more holes. I’m out of bullets.” “That’s all I wanted to know!” said Akpors. “Now hand me back my money and some more for the hat and coat that you’ve ruined or I’ll beat you black and blue!” Terrificjo threw down the money and ran. Moral: It's never too late to use our brains to get out of a difficult situation!
