"Matter of Time"
A minister was trying to sell a pocket watch on a corner. He offered the watch to a man at a very generous price. The man unfortunately refused. So the minister took his business to the zoo.
In the zoo the minister offered the watch to a giraffe, but the giraffe would have nothing to do with time.
Then the minister offered the golden time-piece to a gorilla, but the gorilla did not think gold went well with fur.
The minister tried to sell the pocket watch to a crocodile, but the crocodile only used wrist watches.
With yet another defeat the disheartened minister left the zoo and was arrested. The watch was apparently stolen.
