The Poor Man of Nippur

Fran Hazelton tells the story Gimil Ninurta—a poor man who gives the Mayor of Nippur a goat as a gift. The Mayor tricks Gimil Ninurta by taking his goat and giving him only gristle to eat at the feast. Gimil Ninurta then tricks the Mayor not once, not twice but three times. [12:05]
