Very Expensive Roast Chicken

When the heir to the Rothschild fortune visited a poor Jewish village near Budapest, the locals poured out to greet him.

With all due ceremony, he was given a small parade, met with the mayor, and awarded a key to the city.

At the local inn, he ordered some roast chicken for brunch.

When he finished, he received a bill larger than the most expensive bottle of wine his family sold.

“This is outrageous!” Rothschild shouted at the innkeeper.

“Never in my life have I been charged so much for a roast chicken!

Are chickens that rare around here?”

“Not at all,” said the innkeeper reassuringly.

“But millionaires – ah, they are a rarity!”
