A farmer lived in ancient Rome.

 

He was working in the fields one day when he came across a giant strawberry, about one foot wide and 18 inches high.

 

He thought this would be a novelty that many would want to see, so he took it home, washed it off, and set up a display in a case.

He advertised the giant strawberry far and wide, and people came from all over to see the exhibit.

 

He charged admission and made a pile of money.

 

However, he failed to report his earnings to the tax authorities, so they came to his farm to confiscate the exhibit.

 

When they arrived at his door, he said, "I suppose you have come all this way to admire my exhibit as well?"

 

"No," they said. "We've come to seize your berry, not to praise it."
