A miller asks to marry the king's daughter. The king makes a deal with the miller and says he will write "Yes," on one card and "No" on another card. The miller will have to draw one card in front of the whole village. The night before the miller was to draw the card he heard that the king was going to write no on both cards. How can the miller be sure he gets to marry the king's daughter?
He draws his card, rips it up and tells the king to read what’s on the card that isn’t ripped. The king will draw the "No" card so the people will think the millers card said, "Yes."
