Sozan, a Chinese Zen Master, was asked by a student:

"What is the most valuable thing in the world?"

Sozan replied: " The head of a dead cat!"

The student did not believe his ears and inquired further:

"Why is the dead cat's head the most valuable thing in the world?"

Sozan replied:  "Because, no one can name its price!"
