Bear Hunting

One day, the King sent for Hodja and asked him to go bear hunting. Hodja was terrified of the idea, but had to go nonetheless.

When he got back to the village, somebody asked him:

– How did the bear hunting go?

– Wonderful! replied Hodja.

– How many bears did you kill?

– None!

– How many did you see?

– None!

– Well, how was it ‘wonderful’ then?

– When you are hunting bears, ‘none’ is more than enough! came Hodja’s reply.

~ Reminds me of a soldier who came back rejoicing when the army failed to find the enemy.
