Two cunning thieves were astounded everyday by a white statue sitting on a shop window. "Let's buy it." said one. "Let's steal it." said the other. They decided to steal it. They silently broke in after the shop closed at night. They took the statue and ran through the rain and jumped into the hole in the dumpster, which was their hideout. After one searched his pocket, there was no statue, but salt. They realized it was just salt, silt and water mixed to form a white clay, made into a statue.
