The Cock of Barcelos, Portugal

Here is a really really great card thanks to my dear Marta! I simply love such educational cards, cards with legends or those 'did you know' cards....
well, as i usually do it with these kind of cards, i will just copy the text....in order to spare you from staring at it :)
The Cock of Barcelos

At a banquet given by a rich landowner in Barcelos, the silver was stolen and one guest was accused of the theft. He was tried by the court and was found guilty. In spite of the overwhelming evidence against him, he still protested his innocence. The magistrate granted the man a final chance to prove his case. Seeing a cock in a basket nearby, he said: "If i am innocent, the cock will crow!". The cock crowed and the prisoner was allowed to go free...

Heh....maybe i should try something like this :D
