"Son, I have no money left. The only thing that I have got is this book of horror stories, and if you buy it, I can buy some food and go home. It is priced at 1000 rupees."

The young guy felt sorry for the old man, so he bought the book to help him. The old man was relieved and thanked the young boy for his act of kindness. Before leaving, the old man told him not to turn to the book's last page, or great trouble would fall upon him.

So the young man went home and began reading the book. Once he had finished the book, he could not help his curiosity and wanted to see the last page. He waited for a few days and eventually mustered up the courage to turn to the last page.

As soon as the young man opened the last page of the book, he was dumbfounded to read what it bore, "Price of the book: rupees 30."

A ZOOKEEPER LOST A PAIR OF MONGOOSES TO A STORM

Here's another joke about a zookeeper who lost a pair of mongooses in a storm. The zookeeper wanted to replace them with a new pair, so he sat down to type an email to his supplier one day. He began the email with, "Dear sir, please send me two mongooses at once."

When the zookeeper re-read the email, he thought the words didn't sound right, so he made another attempt: "Dear sir, please send me two mongeese at once."

He was still dissatisfied with the results, so he tried one last time: "Dear sir, please send me one mongoose. And while you're at it - send me another mongoose."

The mollusk eased up a little and replied: "A tornado picked me and threw me. You better get somewhere safe; it's headed this way!"

The man then looked up to check the weather, but the sky was blue with only a few clouds, to his surprise. After a little while, it dawned upon him that "it was the clam before the storm."
