Get Me The Cane!

This is another old Bobanum Moliyum joke:

Once, Boban and Molly asked Big Brother and his wife, Maria, for a square acre of land so they could plant something there. "Do you want the top part of the crop or the part below the ground?" Molly asked them. The only response they got from Maria was, "What a stupid question!" So they went back home.

Afterwards, Big Brother and Maria were discussing this:

Maria: You see what they're trying to do?

Big Brother: Of course! If we ask for the part below the ground, they'll plant cassava, since there's no use for anything other than the root. Otherwise, they'll plant yams.

M: No, you idiot! If we ask for the part below the ground, they'll plant banana plants, and otherwise, they'll give us paddy!

So, finally, Maria came up with a decision: she would ask for the top AND bottom parts of the crop. Boban and Molly would end up only with the middle.

So they planted sugarcane! (Meaning that Big Brother and Maria got useless leaves and roots while Boban and Molly got sweet cane...)
