This was one of the questions at last night's trivia. I was one of the few who figured it out. Now let's see if you can!|
An Arabian sheik informs his two sons, the Princes, that they must race their camels to the neighboring city, but that whoever's camel is the slowest will inherit his fortune. So the Princes take off, riding their camels aimlessly around the desert for five days, with neither wanting to be the first to reach the city, until they meet a wise man. They tell the wise man their situation, and the wise man gives them a piece of advice that has them both jumping back on the camels and racing as fast as they can for the neighboring city. What did the wise man tell them?
