Nasrudin's cherry logic

Nasrudin loaded a barrel of cherries on his donkey, and went off to the bazaar to sell them. On his way, a group of about a dozen children noticed him, and were elated to see all the cherries he was carrying. They began dancing and singing in anticipation of eating cherries.

"Mulla," they said, "please give us some."

Now, Nasrudin was in a dilemma. On one hand, he adored children and did not want to disappoint them; but on the other hand, he loved profits and did not want to sacrifice them either.

After thinking the matter over, he took six cherries out of the barrel and gave them to the children.

"Can we have more?" the children asked.

"Listen," Nasrudin replied, "these cherries all taste the same. What difference does it make if each of you eats half a cherry, or each of you eats fifty?"
