55. A sly student dunce has run out of money. He
resorts to selling off his books, telling his father in a letter,
‘Congratulate me, Father! I’m already earning a living
through my books!’
56. A student dunce, a bald man, and a barber happen to
be travelling together. Having to stay overnight in a remote
area, they agree that each of them will stay awake in four-
hour shifts to watch the baggage. The first watch falls by lot
to the barber. Looking for a diversion, he settles for shaving
the dunce’s head while he sleeps. When his own time is
up, he wakes the dunce. The dunce gets up, scratches his
head, and, finding it smooth, remarks, ‘What an idiot that
barber is! He got it wrong: he was supposed to wake me,
and instead he woke the bald man!’
57. A student dunce begets a child by a slave girl. His father
advises him to kill the child. The dunce retorts, ‘Bury your
own children first, and then tell me to do away with mine!’
58. A student dunce enters the public bath. An attendant
splashes hot water on his feet. The dunce’s reaction: ‘Idiot!
What’s the point of pouring hot water on a man who’s cold?’
