The Witch's Steed

A BROOMSTICK which had long served a witch as a steed complained of the nature of its employment, which it thought degrading.

"Very well," said the Witch, "I will give you work in which you will be associated with intellect - you will come in contact with brains. I shall present you to a housewife."

"I referred," said the Witch, "to the head of her good man."
