Having noticed the empty pot of toddy for several days, the owner hid nearby awaiting for the culprit. After some time a man quitely walked up to he coconut tree and climbed it and drank the collected sweet toddy in the pot and slowly climbed down.

Now that the culprit was caught red-handed the owner questioned why he climbed the coconut tree. Promptly the man rceplied, "to cut some grass." The angry owner said, "Fool! how can you get grass on a coconut tree?"
He replied, "That's why I am getting down."
