The Wisdom of King Solomon

The Wisdom of King Solomon

Post  Rum Tum Tugger on Thu Oct 16, 2008 12:55 pm

Two women came before King Solomon, dragging between them a young man. "This young man agreed to marry my daughter," said one. "No! He agreed to marry MY daughter," said the other. And so they haggled before the King, until he called for silence.

"Bring me my biggest sword," said Solomon, "and I shall hew the young man in two. Each of you shall receive a half." "Sounds good to me," said the first lady. But the other woman said, "Oh Sire, do not spill innocent blood. Let the other woman's daughter marry him."

The wise king did not hesitate a moment. "The young man must marry the first lady's daughter," he proclaimed.

"But she was willing to have him hewn in two!" exclaimed the king's court. "Exactly," said wise King Solomon. "That shows she is the TRUE mother-in-law."
