Just To See

'I'll transfer my fortune to the USSR on condition that for one day all the shops in Leningrad will give everything away free.'

The authorities thought about this, and since the inheritance was vast, they decided to agree. .

The next day all the shops in Leningrad gave their goods away free. There was pandemonium — people climbing over one another, children crushed.

The hospitals and soon the morgues too were filled to overflowing...

'See what you've done,' the authorities say to the man. 'What on earth did you want this to happen for?'

'I'm an old man,' replies the Leningrader, 'and before I die I badly wanted to see what Communism would be like.'
