The Dolls

One day, the prince was hanging out alone when he met an old man. The old man gave him three dolls. Displeased with the dolls, the prince said, “Am I a girl so you give me dolls.” The old man answered, “These are the presents to a king wanna be. If you see them, there is a hole on each doll’s ears.” The old man gave a string to the prince, “Put in this string on the one hole so it can come out from the other one. Do it to each of doll.”

Drove by curiosity, the prince took the first doll and put in the string on its ear until it came out from the other ear. “It is a certain kind of men. Everything you said to him, it will come out from the other ear. They will not get anything,” said the old man. The prince put in the string to the second doll. It came out from its mouth. “It is the second one. Everything you said to him, he will say it to the others.”

The prince took the third doll and did it again. But the string didn’t come out. “It is the third one. Everything you said, it will not come out,” said the old man. “Is it the best?” the prince asked. As an answer, the old man gave the last doll.

When the prince put in the string on its ear, it came out from the other ear. “Did it again,” asked the old man. The prince did it again, but the string came out from its mouth. When he did it for the third time, it didn’t come out. “This is the best,” said the old man. “To be trusted, a man should know when he have to shut his mouth and listening for nothing, when he should listening for keeping the information, and when he should open his mouth.”
