There was once a Teacher who lived next door to Dr. LaBeaver.
The Teacher owned a hen and each morning would
look in his garden and pick up one of his hen's eggs for
One day he looked into his garden and saw that the hen had laid
an egg in Dr. LaBeaver's garden. He was about to go next door
when he saw Dr. LaBeaver pick up the egg. The Teacher ran up
to Dr. LaBeaver and told him that the egg belonged to him
because he owned the hen. Dr. LaBeaver disagreed because the
egg was laid on his property.
They argued for a while until finally the Teacher said, "In my
family we normally solve disputes by the following actions: I
kick you in the balls and time how long it takes you to get back
up, then you kick me in the balls and time how long it takes for
me to get up, whomever gets up quicker wins the egg."
Dr. LaBeaver agreed to this and so the Teacher found his
heaviest pair of boots and put them on, he took a few steps back,
then ran toward Dr. LaBeaver and kicked as hard as he could in
the balls. Dr. LaBeaver fell to the floor clutching his nuts
howling in agony for 30 minutes.
Eventually Dr. LaBeaver stood up and said, "Okay, now it's my
turn to kick you."
The Teacher said, "Keep the damn egg."
