120. An Abderite hears that onions and other bulbous plants
cause wind. So when he’s out sailing and the sea is calm,
he hangs a sackful from the stern.
121. An Abderite observes a runner who’s been crucified.
‘By the gods,’ he exclaims, ‘he’s no longer running — he’s
flying!’
122. An Abderite is selling a pitcher that’s missing its
ears. When someone asks why he took away the ears, he
answers, ‘So it wouldn’t run away when it heard it was being
sold.’
123. An Abderite has cremated his father according to
custom. Afterward, he runs home to his sick mother and
says, ‘There’s still a bit of firewood left; so if you want to
end your pain, get yourself cremated with it.’
124. An Abderite is dreaming that he’s selling a pig, and is
asking 100 denarii for it. Someone is offering fifty, but he
won’t take it. At that point, he wakes up. Then, keeping his
eyes shut, he holds out his hand and says, ‘Oh well, O.K.,
give me the fifty.’
