    The only cow in a small town in Poland stopped giving
    milk. The people did some research and found that they
    could buy a cow from Moscow for 2,000 rubles, or one
    from Minsk for 1,000 rubles. Being frugal, they bought
    the cow from Minsk.

    The cow was wonderful. It produced lots of milk all the
    time, and the people were amazed and very happy.
    They decided to acquire a bull to mate with the cow
    and produce more cows like it. Then they would never
    have to worry about the milk supply again.

    They bought a bull and put it in the pasture with their
    beloved cow. However, whenever the bull came close
    to the cow, the cow would move away. No matter what
    approach the bull tried, the cow would move away from
    the bull and he could not succeed in his quest.

    The people were very upset and decided to ask the rabbi,
    who was very wise, what to do. They told the rabbi what
    was happening; "Whenever the bull approaches our cow,
    she moves away. If he approaches from the back, she
    moves forward. When he approaches her from the front,
    she backs off. An approach from the side and she just
    walks away to the other side. The rabbi thought about
    this for a minute and asked,

    "Did you buy this cow from Minsk?"

    The people were dumbfounded. They had never mentioned
    where they had gotten the cow. "You are truly a wise rabbi.
    How did you know we got the cow from Minsk?

    "The rabbi answered sadly, "My wife is from Minsk."
