Nasrudin Gets Sued

Nasrudin Gets Sued

Nasrudin was going around town saying that, “The wise men of this town put together don’t know shit.”
One day, a group of them took Nasrudin to court, and demanded that he back up his statement or else face punishment.
“OK,” said Nasrudin.
He presented each of them with a piece of paper and pencil, and remarked, “Now each of you should write an answer to this question: ‘What is shit?’“
They all wrote a response and handed it to the judge, who read them out loud.
“The scientist wrote that shit it is a composition of water and foodwastes.
“The philosopher wrote that it is a living being’s manifestation of the universe’s prevalent themes of cycles and changes.
“The doctor wrote that it is the matter that must be passed through the body as part of regularity of bowels and good health.
“The religious leader wrote that it is a symbol of our sins passing through our body.
“The fortuneteller wrote that it is material that can be used to tell our future.
After hearing these answers, Nasrudin remarked, “You see what I mean—all of these wise men put together don’t know shit.”

About Mulla Nasrudin
Mulla/Hodja/Hoca Nasrudin is the starring character in a vast number of amusing tales told in regions all over the world, particularly countries in or near the Middle East. The character is a unique spin on a wise sage or philosopher character. He is sometimes wise, sometimes foolish, and sometimes both. He tends to be illogical yet logical, rational yet irrational, bizarre yet normal, and simple yet profoundly wise. Each Mulla Nasrudin tale depicts him in a different situation, and through his viewpoint they humorously reveal commentary and lessons on various life themes. The great allure of the tales is that they are funny as well as and educational and thought provoking. And although most of them depict Nasrudin in an early small village setting, the tales deal with concepts that have relevance to today’s universe and people.
