A king was fed up by the constant jokes about the men in his kingdom being afraid of their wives.
He wanted to find a man who wasn’t afraid of his wife and give him public honors and lavish him with gifts so other men may follow suit.
After some brainstorming in the court the king announced to his subjects that ”
if a man comes forward and publically say that he is NOT AFRAID of his wife,
then that man will win the best horse from the king’s stables”.
The king waited with with baited breath for someone to come forward.
Days passed but nobody came forward. The king was about to lose all hope then suddenly a man came in his court saying that “he was NOT AFRAID of his wife”.
The king was over the moon thinking that there is indeed a real man in his kingdom.
He called all his subjects in a big Field and introduced them to the man who was definitely NOT AFRAID of his wife. Everyone applauded in awe as king presented him with the best red horse in his stable.
The man disappointingly looked at the horse. The king was confused. “What is it? You don’t like the horse? “
The man replied, ” actually, if you don’t mind your highness, my wife asked me to bring a white horse “
