Shelmazel is certainly the laziest man in the village.  Everyday he sits on his porch whittling a stick.  Always the same stool and always the same stick.  Villages all commented on how lazy he was.  But it didn't bother him.  He just told them that he wasn't lazy -- he was unlucky!.  When one of the villagers tries to trick Shelmazel into working, what do you think will happen?  Can Shelmazel every change?
SUBJECTS:     Luck -- Folklore.
