Pappu, a carpenter working on a cabin beside a river dropped his hammer into the water one day.
The fairy of the river appeared saying, “I’ll help you…” then jumped into the river.
She resurfaced holding a gold hammer. “Is this your hammer?”
The fairy dived again and surfaced with a silver hammer. “This one?”
The third time the fairy dived in she resurfaced with the Pappu’s old rusty hammer. “This one?”
The fairy was very pleased. “Because you’re an honest man, I’ll give you the gold and silver hammers as well.”
A few days later, Pappu’s wife, Pappi, came to visit him. She accidentally fell into the river.
The fairy of the river appeared again saying “I’ll help you…” then jumped into the river.
She resurfaced with a hot babe. “Is this your wife?”
The fairy got mad. “You liar! And I thought you were a good man…”
Pappu explained, “I’m sorry. But if I said no, you’ll dive again and bring back another hot babe, and then my wife only on the third dive. And then you’ll give me all of them for my kindness. I’m just a poor peasant and I can’t support 3 wives! And so I just answer yes to the first one…”
