       Once a boy was confessing and when the confessor asked if he had anything to say about the Seventh Commandment, the boy replied:

    - Well, I accuse myself that I am half fool.

    'Well, but that is no sin, that is a misfortune. I wonder if you have taken something that is not yours.

    - as I am half fool, when it is farming time, I take advantage when the neighbor do not see me and I take his wheat and then I put it in the threshing floor of my father.

    - But why don't you take the wheat from your father's threshing floor and then bring it to your neighbor?

    And the boy answered:

    - Because if I do that, I would be a completely fool.
