A KING HAD TWO SONS. HE LOVED THEM EQUALLY. IN ORDER TO DECIDE
WHICH ONE HE WOULD GIVE HIS LAND, HE HAVE THEM TWO OF HIS
FASTEST HORSES AND HAD THEM START AT THE END OF HIS KINGDOM AND
RACE TO THE CASTLE. THE ONE WHO RETURNED LAST WOULD GET THE LAND.
THEY DRAGGED ALONG FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS. FINALLY THEY CAME TO AN
INN. THEY STOPPED AT THE INN AND WHILE THERE, THEY COMPLAINED TO
THE INNKEEPER ABOUT HOW BORED THEY WERE. THE INNKEEPER WHISPERED
TWO WORDS INTO THEIR EARS. THEY RAN OUT, JUMPED ON THEIR HORSES
AND RACED OFF. WHAT WERE THE TWO WORDS? CHANGE HORSES.
