A long, long time ago, two Egyptian camel drivers were fighting for the hand of the daughter of the sheik of Abbudzjabbu. The sheik, who liked neither of these men to become the future husband of his daughter, came up with a clever plan: a race would determine who of the two men would be allowed to marry his daughter. Therefore, the sheik organized a camel race. Both camel drivers had to travel from Cairo to Abbudzjabbu, and the one whose camel would arrive last in Abbudzjabbu, would be allowed to marry the sheik's daughter.
The two camel drivers, realizing that this could become a rather lengthy expedition, finally decided to consult the Wise Man of their village. Arrived there, they explained him the situation, upon which the Wise Man raised his cane and spoke four wise words. Relieved, the two camel drivers left his tent: they were ready for the contest!

Birbal, never wanting to disappoint anyone, went to that man's house and he was greeted warmly in a hall filled with people.
"I had no idea that there will be so many other guest present here." commented Birbal since he hated large gatherings.
"Dear Birbal, they are not guests. All, except one of them are work here for me." told the wealthy man with a cunning look.
The rich man then asked, "Can you tell which of them the guest is?"
"Perhaps I could," responded Birbal. "Go on...talk to them and I would observe them as you talk, maybe tell them a joke." added Birbal.
The rich man recited a joke that was the worst that Birbal had ever heard. As he finished, everyone in the hall laughed hilariously.
"Now tell me which of them my other invitee is?" said the rich man as he finished telling his bad joke.
And Birbal pointed his finger at a man.
The stunned man asked, "How did you identify him?"
