A samurai enters a tea parlour.

A woman asks him to whom he sold his sword.

Samurai looks at her sternly and replies morosely: “I didn’t sell it. Anyway, it was not a sword but rather a bowl of rice, I hardly got anything for it.”

The woman adds: “Why is it then that you have two swords in your belt?”
