I heard about a man who always said “This is

good.” to everything that happened to him.

when it went off it shot the king’s thumb off. Examining the situation, the friend said as usual, “This is good.”

Well, the king got mad and through his friend in jail. “No, this is not good.” About a year later, the king goes on another hunting trip to a area

where there are cannibals. The Cannibals capture him and tie his hands and feet and bound him to a stake to cook.

“What do you mean, This is good.”

“How could it be good that I sent my friend to jail for a year?”

“If I had not been in jail, I would have been with you.”
