An elderly oriental lumber salesman was having some difficulty maintaining his stock of expensive hardwood. No matter how much he ordered it seemed to vanish into thin air. The finest detectives in the country were called in to help solve the crime. After weeks of disappearing lumber and intense sleuthing about the only clues they could find were some small footprints, apparently made by a very young boy. This confused the detectives tremendously as the wood was very heavy and could not have been purloined by such a small criminal. Finally, in desperation the owner vowed to stay up one night in hopes that he could catch the thief red handed. All was quiet until about 3:30 in the morning when the old owner heard the rustle of wood planks being carried off into the countryside. He shined the brightest spotlight he could find onto the culprit, exposing a huge grizzly standing upright and wearing the tiniest little sandles he had ever seen, each bearing the imprint of a small foot. The proprietor surveyed the situation for a moment and then confronted the thief:
"Greetings to thee, little man, boyfoot bear with teak of Chan."
