|A Separatist Statue
A man finds an old bronze statue of a rat in an antique store.
The shopkeeper says: "It's $10 for the statue, but $100 for the story
that goes with it."
The man skips the story, hands over $10, and starts to walk home with
the statue under his arm.
On the way, hundreds of rats start to follow along behind him.
The man runs to the nearest bridge and throws the statue in the water.
To his amazement all the rats follow the statue
and leap off the bridge to their deaths.
When the man returns to the store the owner says: "You've come back
for the story of the statue."
The man says: "No, I was wondering if you might have a bronze statue
of a Separatist."
