Hee-haw there, me Gheg-Tosk boys! Hee-haw! I can't believe my luck: yet, Even so, here I sit in a real bad fix; you see, I am being weighed down by my very own spunk! Just yesterday, I caught myself a real big fly; But today, I can't decide to let him live or let him die!
* He caught himself a thief! Now, he must decide what to do with him, I guess. Its a real mind twister. The above poem is an adaptation of a popular Albanian joke, which can be found with some variation among many other coastal Mediterranean nations and their rich ethnic lore.
