  clip_image004 Back in the time of the Samurai there was a powerful emperor who needed a new head Samurai so he sent out a declaration throughout the country that he was searching for one.
 A year passed and only 3 people showed up. 

The emperor asked the first Samurai to come in and demonstrate why he should be head Samurai.
clip_image006The first Samurai opened a match box and out pops a little fly. Whoosh goes his sword and the fly drops dead on the ground in 2 pieces. 
The emperor exclaimed That is very impressive!"
The emperor then asked the second Samurai to come in and demonstrate. The second Samurai also opened a match box and out pops a fly. Whoosh whoosh goes his sword. The fly drops dead on the ground in 4 pieces "
The emperor exclaimed, "That is really very impressive!"

The third Samurai also opened a match box and out pops a fly. His flashing sword goes whoooooooossshhh whoooooooossshhh whoooooooossshhh whoooooooossshhh whoooooooossshhh.

The third Samurai smiled, "If you look closely, you'll see that the fly has been circumcised (*).
