Whoever makes it, tells it not; whoever takes it, knows it not; and whoever knows it, wants it not. What is it?
A farmer went to market and purchased a fox, a goose, and a bag of corn (for reasons that must forever remain his own). On his way home, he needed to cross a river, but the boat he found there was so tiny, it could only carry the farmer himself and a single one of his new possessions.
Naturally he couldn’t leave the fox alone with the goose; or the goose alone with the bag of corn. The only things he could safely leave together were the fox and the bag of corn, for a fox will never be tempted to eat corn, and only very rarely will a bag of corn be tempted to eat a fox. The farmer’s challenge was this: how could he ferry all of his possessions across the river, without harm coming to any of them?
