Kingly Song

There was a middle eastern king that was having money problems and decided that the only way to stay afloat was to sell his valuables. He managed to sell everything off except for the Star of the Euphrates. This was the most valuable diamond in the world.

He took it to a pawnbroker who opened him 100,000 rials for it. “What?” said the king. “I paid one million for it! Do you even know who I am?”

The pawnbroker said, “When you wish to pawn a star, it makes no difference who you are.”
