(A small disclaimer: The article that you are about to read is a translation from its Turkish original. It contains literary pieces like quotes from a famous Turkish poem, and as you might know it is really difficult to translate poems without them losing some of their original beauty. Therefore, if something sounds unnatural, please keep in mind that it probably lost some meaning in translation.)

A widespread urban legend depicts three Turkish football fans that are reading the newspaper on a ferry traveling through the Bosphorus: The Fener fan bought the newspaper and is reading it. The Beşiktaş fan is trying to read over the shoulder of the Fener fan. The Galatasaray fan on the other hand, waits until the Fenerbahçe fan is done with it and the newspaper is disposed, then goes, picks it up, and reads it comfortably.
