The chief monk at the monastery was looking for someone to replace him.
He called the monks together and placed in front of them a water bottle. He said:
Chief Monk: “Without calling this a water bottle, tell me what it is.”
One monk said,
First Monk: “You couldn’t call it a block of wood.”
The second monk poured himself a drink.
Just then the cook walked into the room and kicked the water bottle over.
The cook was made head of the monastery.
