An Arab sheikh tells his two sons to race their camels to a distant city to see who will inherit his fortune. The one
whose camel is slower will win. The brothers, after wandering aimlessly for days, ask a wise man for advise.
After hearing the advice they jump on the camels and race as fast as they can to the city. What does the wise
man say?

They race to the registration office where the first one to name is camel "Slower" gets the inheritance.
Any other answers?
