The Dark Cloud

It is said that laughter is the best medicine. This post is dedicated to a brave young medical student with a screw loose (literally). She is recovering from an operation to have the screw removed. May the Lord bless her and heal her.

The Dark Cloud

A person of dark complexion symbolizes hard work and determination. One day two neighbours were arguing over whose father was darker in complexion. One neighbor said, “My father’s complexion was so dark, that when he went to give blood, the doctors were shocked because his blood was so dark.”

“That’s nothing,” said the other man. “My father’s complexion was so dark that when he broke his leg and went to the hospital to have the broken bones set, the doctor was shocked to find his bones was so dark.”

The two neighbours continued arguing in this manner until they spotted Pak Pandir. “O Pak Pandir,” they called out to him. “Can you settle a dispute for us please?” they asked him and proceeded to relate the story of their respective fathers.

Pak Pandir listened very carefully, stroking the white hairs of his beard. At the end of their story, they asked Pak Pandir to decide whose father had the darker complexion. “Neither,” replied Pak Pandir promptly. “You see, my father’s complexion was so dark that when he farted one day, the whole village was cast in darkness.”
