A young Turkish gardener said to his Prince, "Save me, for I saw Death this morning while walking through the garden and he made a threatening gesture. I wish tonight, by some miracle, I could be far away in Ispahan."

The Prince leant him his swiftest horse.

That afternoon, the Prince came face to face with Death and asked him, "Why did you make a threatening gesture towards my gardener?"

"It was not a threatening gesture" said Death. "It was a gesture of surprise. For I saw him here this morning and I knew I would take him in Ispahan tonight."

Not really anything to do with the game, I know, but I still think of it as an amusing little story. Written by Jean Cocteau, btw.
