Of Humor, Laughter and Wisdom...

Have fun with this hilarious joke that also teaches a good life lesson:

Old  MacDonald
There were only three remaining contestants in  the final round of the quiz … Chin, Bah and Kah. The $50,000 question was to finish the following song title and spell the answer:  “Old MacDonald had a  …”
Chin was to answer first and he said , “estate” … “e-s-t-a-t-e”.
The quiz master said, “Sorry, wrong answer but right spelling.”
Bah was very excited as he thought he knew the answer. He shouted out, “The answer is ‘ranch’ …r-a-n-c-h”.
The quiz master said, “Sorry again, wrong answer but right spelling.”
The quiz master then turned to Kah and said, “For $50,000 what is the answer?” Kah said, “Farm”.
“Very good,” the quiz master said. “Now spell it.”
Kah shouted out excitedly,  “E-I-E-I-O!”
 
In a state of excitement or tension a person can say or do the most absurd thing .  One has to learn to keep the mind controlled and calm so that it will remain clear for good thinking amidst challenging times.
