A liar and hunter, by name, John went to the Sahara desert to hunt crocodiles. All the crocodiles became afraid, and requested the liar not to kill any of them. In return, the princess of crocodiles gave the hunter a platinum egg.

The liar became happy, took the egg, put it in his hunting gear and started swimming in the desert sand. But, he found that the egg was growing bigger by the hour.

When he reached home, the egg was a full five inch round ball. His son, Martin (3 year old) took the egg and Viola! it became one/tenth of its size.

Martin swallowed the egg and began to gasp for air. His mother, Mary was a smart woman. She took a magnet and held it near her son's mouth. The platinum got attracted to the magnet and when Mary took it in her hands, it evaporated into thin air.

John's next plan is to go to Antartica and he wants to capture giraffes.
