Three samurai are arguing among themselves about which is the greatest. The
first says, "See that fly?" and in a blur, he draws his sword, swings, and
replaces it. The fly drops in two pieces.
The second says, "Very good, but do you see that fly?" And with that he
draws, swings and puts back his sword, and the fly falls in _four_ pieces.
The third says, "That is nothing. See that fly?" and he quickly draws,
swings, and resheaths his sword. The fly keeps flying on.
"Ha!" the other two laugh, "the fly isn't even dead!"
"Yes," says the third samurai, "but he will never have children."
