Is it a similar story to the following one ?

A little boy who grazed ten camels on one of  which he rode  ,then he counted his camels. Out of the blue , he found that there were only nine camels . However  , there were ten when he jumped down and counted them . Again there were nine after he climbed on one of his camels. Then the number altered between ten and nine .Ten ,nine ,ten,nine ......... And the little boy got completely bewildered .

  Is it a similar joke to yours ?
