Banzan's best meat

"One day Banzan was walking through a market. He overheard a customer say to the butcher. 'Give me the best piece of meat you have.' 'Everything in my shop is the best,' replied the butcher. 'You cannot find any piece of meat that is not the best.' At these words, Banzan was enlightened."
