Example of Spoof Text
Selling a Goat
(Menjual Kambing)


One day there was a man named Pak Tibah. He was asked by his father in law to sell a goat in traditional market named Pasar Sattoan. The goat is priced at Rp.300.000. He did not have an expert to sell anything. The best thing that he had was honesty.

Event 1 

In the next morning, Pak Tibah took the goat to the traditional market on foot. He did not go there by a public transportation which usually took some kinds of animals. One of his reasons was the location was not really far from his house to the market.

Event 2

After getting there, many people offered the goat with different prices but none offered it with exact price. He waited for the buyers till he spent the opening hours. After that he decided to go home without bringing amount of money because the goat was unsold.

Event 3

The father in law waited for him for many hours at home and hoped the goat was sold. An amount of money was really needed by him at the time. After Pak Tibah got home, the father in law asked “Why the goat is still with you? Was the goat unsold?”


“It was unsold with the hoped price” “The price was less and even more than the hoped price” replied the man. Some of them offered it Rp.350.000 and even more than that. He did not allow them because it was not based on the hope of father in law.

Oh my god. I never think that you will be stupid. I asked you to sell the goat Rp.300.000 but if it was more than the price why did not you sell it? Will not it be an advantage? The father in law said.
