The three of them decide to have a blood sucking contest to decide who gets the fortune.
On the first night, the oldest brother goes out. He comes back with blood dripping down his chin. His brothers ask him how he did it and he points to a dead man. “See that guy over there? I drank all of his blood.” His younger brothers are very impressed.
On the second night the middle brother goes out. He comes back with blood all over his lips and cheeks. His brothers are very surprised by this and ask him how he did it. He points to a nearby town. “See that town over there? I drank the blood of EVERYONE there!” The oldest brother is very impressed at this and the youngest brother is freaking out because he has to go next.
On the third night the youngest brother goes out. He comes back with blood all over his entire face, forehead to chin. His brothers are both impressed and surprised with him, so they ask him how he did it so he points to a stop sign in the distance. “See that pole over there?” His brothers nod. “I didn’t.”
