A man was riding in the back of his limousine when he saw a man eating grass by the roadside. He ordered his driver to stop and he got out to investigate.

“Why are you eating grass?” he asked the man, curious as to this rather strange spectacle.

“I don’t have any money for food,” the poor man replied.

“Oh, please come to my house!” was the immediate reply from the rich man.

“But sir, I have a wife and four children…” stammered the man eating the grass.

“Well that is just perfect! Bring them along as well” the rich man insisted.

So the poor man gathered his family from under the nearby bridge and they all piled in the exquisite limousine. As they hit the road, the poor man said, “Sir, you are simply too kind. Thank you for taking all of us in.”

The rich man replied, “No, no, you don’t understand. The grass at my house is over three feet tall!”
