The Donkey and the Load of Salt

Donkey figured out that if she stumbled crossing the creek, she could lighten her load by half as the spilt salt melted away.  The farmer compensated by doubling her load each time until he figured out she was doing it on purpose.  So, next instead of salt, he loaded her with sponges.  When she "stumbled" this time, the sponges soaked up so much water she could barely carry it all home.
