Summary - How a man found three people more foolish than himself and was able to wed.

There was a man who wasn't allowed to marry until he found three people more foolish than himself. He went away and he saw a man pulling a cow up the wall of a house to graze on the grass growing on the roof. He told him to cut the grass with a sickle. He went to a house where he saw a man trying to jump into his trousers. He told him to put his feet in one at a time and then pull the trousers up. He saw a man gardening with a lit candle in daylight because his glasses were so dirty he couldn't see a thing. He gave him a handkerchief to clean his glasses. He then went home and got married.
