One day in a military-style bunker in the middle of nowhere, a mighty dictator was sitting at his usual table studying the map of his enemies' territory, with his newly sharpened pencil proudly beside his map on the table.


The dictator was enjoying his lunch, so he looked away for a split second to take a bite from his sandwich, but when he turned back to his map, he noticed that his pencil was gone.



"Perhaps, I never took out a pencil," he thought to himself as he reached for a new pencil and placed it next to his map. Then he looked away again to take a bite of his sandwich.

When he looked back, the second pencil was gone. The pencils continued to disappear each time he looked away several more times until the dictator had enough. So he called in the second in command, John.

John came into the dictator's office and said, "Yes, Sir. What can I do for you? What have you summoned me for?"

The dictator said, "Comrade, someone keeps stealing my pencils. Find out the fascist who stole all of my pencils so that I may punish them! "

John agreed and headed out of his office on his mission to find the criminals who had stolen the dictator's pencils. After some time, the dictator found that one of his desk drawers was half open.

When he opened the drawer of his desk fully, he discovered that it was full of his missing pencils, so he called John back to his office.

"Good day!" saluted John, "What can I do for you, my great and wise leader?"

"Well, comrade," said the dictator, "I have to be honest with you. I found all of the pencils. They were in my drawer this whole time. Cancel the search!"

John got very nervous and said, "Well, what do you mean, comrade? 500 people have already confessed!"
