Four Wise Words

Post by Talon » Fri May 20 05 ; 10 26 am

A long, long time ago, two Egyptian camel drivers were fighting for the hand of the daughter of the sheik of Abbudzjabbu. The sheik, who liked neither of these men to become the future husband of his daughter, came up with a clever plan: a race would determine who of the two men would be allowed to marry his daughter. And so the sheik organized a camel race. Both camel drivers had to travel from Cairo to Abbudzjabbu, and the one whose camel would arrive last in Abbudzjabbu, would be allowed to marry the sheik's daughter.
The two camel drivers, realizing that this could become a rather lengthy expedition, finally decided to consult the Wise Man of their village. Arrived there, they explained him the situation, upon which the Wise Man raised his cane and spoke four wise words. Relieved, the two camel drivers left his tent: they were ready for the contest!

Which 4 wise words did the Wise Man speak?

"Ride each other's cammels," or some such. Its the only way to turn it into a proper race.

Its also possible that the wise man asked "But, aren't you gay?" and the two men married each other.. but I'll go with my original answer.

Yeah, I've heard a similar riddle to that before, but couldn't remember the answer.
