Laughing out loud

The palace feast-day

Nasrudin went to the palace for a feast-day--but when the servants noticed his ragged clothes, they paid him no attention and offered him no food. And so, Nasrudin went back to his house, put on his most extravagant clothing, and returned to the palace, where this time he was treated like royalty, and had numerous dishes placed in front of him.

Nasrudin then proceeded to take handfuls of food and pour and rubbing them into his clothing--causing another guest to ask, "What in the world are you doing?" "Oh, I am just feeding my clothing first," was the reply. "After all, they are what got me this food!"

The donkey experiment

Nasrudin began gradually reducing the amount of food he fed to his donkey each day, hoping to get it accustomed to less and less food. By day thirty, however, the much-emaciated donkey dropped dead.

"Darn it," Nasrudin lamented. "I was just a few days away from getting this donkey used to living on no food at all!"
