Mang Ren Xia Ma (A Blind Man Riding a Blind Horse)
Huan Nanjun, Yin Zhongkai and Gu Kaizhi were playing a game of trying to mention or describe the most frightening and dangerous situation.
Huan began the game with one like this: "Use a spearhead to wash rice in a sieve-baaket, and a sword point to stir food in a cooking pot."
Yin followed Huan, saying: "A centenarian clambers along a withered branch on the tree."
Gu contributed one really dangerous situation, saying: "A baby lies on the windlass of a well!"
When the three of them had said all these, a staff officer of Yin, who was also there, ventured to say: "A blind man riding a blind horse approaches the brink of an unfathomable pool at midnight."
Because he himself was blind in one eye, Yin Zhongkai exclaimed on hearing this: "Dear me, how truly dangerous and sharp-wirred!"
