A touching story


One afternoon a prominent Tory was riding in his
ministerial car when he saw two men along the road-side eating grass.

Disturbed, he ordered his driver to stop and got out to investigate.

He asked one man, “Why are you eating grass?”
“We don’t have any money for food,” the poor man replied. “We have to eat grass.”

“Well, then, you can come with me to my house and I’ll feed you,” the Tory said.

“But sir, I have a wife and two children with me. They are over there, under that tree.”

“Bring them along,” the Tory replied.

Turning to the other poor man he stated, “You may come with us, also.”

The second man, in a pitiful voice, then said, “But sir, I also have a wife and SIX children with me!”

“Bring them all as well,” the Tory answered.

They all entered the car, which was no easy task, even for a car as large as the limousine was.

Once under way, one of the poor fellows turned to the Tory and said, “Sir, you are too kind.”

“Thank you for taking all of us with you. ”

The Tory replied, “Glad to do it. You’ll really love my place. The grass is almost a foot high.”
