The Earring and the Rat


A rat swallowed his wife’s diamond earring. Upset, the husband hired a man to find and recover the jewel.

When the man arrived, he found there were more than one-hundred rats trapped in the cellar. He also saw one rat sitting alone and not interacting with the rest of the mischief.

He quickly captured it and returned the diamond to the man. Amazed, the husband asked, “How’d you know it was that rat and not any of the others?”

“Easy,” he answered, “when an idiot gets rich, he looks down on others and doesn’t mix because he thinks he’s better.”
