Boyko Borisov and the Golden Fish

Bulgaria's Prime Minister Boyko Borsiov started going out fishing. One day, he threw in his net and pulled out seaweed two times in succession, but on the third time he pulled out a golden fish.

The fish pleaded for its life, promising any wish in return. It suggested that she would be happier to grant one big request, rather than three smaller ones.

Borisov agreed and said:

"I want a huge, six-lane highway, linking Sofia to New York."

The fish was taken aback by the magnitude of the assignment and asked the prime minister to make another wish:

Borisov thought for a second and with no hesitation said:

"I want you to solve all problems with Bulgaria's roads and streets, which are – I must confess - a showcase for potholes and uncollected garbage."

The fish then suddenly got sullen and obviously changing its mind, said:

"Could you please repeat your first request?"
