NOT A GRAVEYARD



WHEN Bernard shaw was awarded the Nobel Prize, there was a gathering to celebrate the event. The fact that shaw was a vegetarian was not known to the organizers.

The hall was filled with many celebrities. The guests started helping themselves to the refreshments. It was soon observed that only shaw refrained from touching them. Somebody told shaw, “You are the guest of honour and you don’t seem at all interested in the food!” Shaw made a reply that would be for ever carved in the memory of those who heard it:

“I am a human being and not a graveyard for the burial of the dead!”

“Animals are my friends and I do not eat my friends.”
