The statue of a famous general had to be carried from the stone mason's yard to the town square. Guess who got the job of carrying the statue? Denzil the dimwit. As he went down the streets with his cart, people stopped, stood to attention and saluted the statue of the famous general. This happened so often that although, as usual, Denzil was day-dreaming even he noticed in the end.
"Hey, this is cool," thought Denzil "I'm more famous than I thought !" He stopped to return the salutes, raised one leg in the air, fell over and biffed his nose on the road!
