One Eyebrow
A rascal had no money for the New Year's Day and this worried his wife. The rascal said, "You may rest assured, everything will be all right."

Later when he saw a barber passing by, he had a brainstorm, and he thought up a clever scheme. He asked the barber to give him a hair cut.

"Could you cut my eyebrows off," said the rascal after the barber had begun cutting.

When one of his brows was shaved, he shouted, "Barbers never cut eyebrows! This is an unheard of absurdity!" With these words the rascal seized the barber by the collar, and took him to the court to seek justice.

The barber was frightened, and had to pay 100 copper cash to settle the matter. Having extorted the money, the rascal spent a happy New Year's Day.

Seeing that one of her husband's eyebrows had disappeared, his wife suggested, "you'd better have the other day brow shaved off too."

"Don't you understand what my next move is?", said the rascal. "This brow will be left for the Lantern Festival."
