Lazy rice, lazy man
A lazy man begged for rice, put it in bag, and made a plan. He would trade the rice for a cow, then trade the cow for a buffalo, then sell the buffalo to pay for a wife, who would do all the work. If she complained, he would hit her! At this thought, he swung his hand as if hitting an imaginary wife. But instead he hit bag of rice, which spilled onto the floor. The chickens ate it, and he had nothing.
