(This is same as the story told in http://www.santabanta.com/jokes/15560/5-idiots/ written slightly differently . My acknowledgements to the author of the story)
One day the chief of India called the Police chief,
And told him that he wanted to see five great idiots of the country.
The Police chief was aghast for he knew how to find a wise person but not an idiot
But Order was an order and he searched all over the country.
He returned with two people and met the Prime minister with them,
And said “Sir, I have brought the five idiots whom you wanted,
One is this first one, who was trying to dig alone, a huge mountain ,
So that he can dig a huge lake to supply waterto the entire country.
He then showed the second one and showed , the second idiot and told,
“ This gentleman claimed that he was going to USA by walk,,
And for every forward step , he took two backward steps.” And the chief said,
“Okay but what about the other three?” and the Police chief replied.
“The third is myself for going on such a useless and silly errand like this,
And the fourth is yourself , for sending me on this idiotic errand ,
And Fifth sir, Is the one who read this silly thing up to the end ,
In the Whatsapp , hoping that he would find out how I found those five idiots.”
