Once upon a time…

Once upon a time, a Sultan was blessed with the birth of a son after years of hoping.

The boy immediately became the apple of his father’s eye.

Just before his son’s sixth birthday, the Sultan said to him, “Son, I love you very much.

Your birthday is coming soon. What would you like?”

His son replied, “Daddy, I would like to have my own airplane.”

His father bought him American Airlines.

Just before his son’s seventh birthday, the Sultan said, “Son, you are my pride and joy. Ask what you want for your birthday. Whatever it is, it’s yours.” His son replied, “Daddy, I would like a boat.”

His father bought him the Princess Cruise Line.

Just before his son’s eighth birthday, the Sultan said, “Son, you bring so much happiness into my life.

Anything you want, I shall get for you.”

His son replied, “Daddy, I would like to be able to watch cartoons.”

His father bought him Disney Studios.

Just before his son’s ninth birthday, the Sultan said, “Son, you are my life. Your birthday is coming soon. Ask what you wish. I will get it for you.”

His son, who had grown to love Disney, replied, “Daddy, I would like a Mickey Mouse outfit and a Goofy outfit”

His father bought him the Democratic Party and NBC news.
