- Once upon a time there was a man walking along the road when he saw three other men along the road side. The man said to them Which of you is the laziest. I will give sixpence to the laziest.
The first man went over to the man said Give the sixpence to me. I am the laziest. The second man said 'Give it to me, as I am the laziest, so he stretched out his hand. The third man sat where he was, he neither reached his hand nor went over. He did not move, but he said Put the sixpence in my pocket. He won it.Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
