The king of a small African nation had an elegant golden throne in his large grass hut
When an old friend came to visit from another nation, he was worried that the man would discover he was a king and treat him differently
He searched frantically for a place to hide the throne, but to no avail
Finally, he decided to have it wedged up in the ceiling of his hut
When his friend arrived, he went to the hut's opening to greet him
Just then, the ceiling started to give way, and the golden throne fell on the king and killed him
The moral of the story is this: People who live in grass houses should not stow thrones.
