The Best

Once upon a time, a monk was taking a walk through a thriving bazaar, where he overheard a conversation between a storekeeper and his customer.

“Give me the best bananas that you have,” the customer requested.

“Sir, everything in my shop is the best,”replied the storekeeper.

“You will not find any piece of fruit here that is not the best.”

With these words, the monk became enlightened.
