Laughing out loud

Nasrudin preaches

Nasrudin was scheduled to give a religious speech one day to an all-male audience, but had no particular topic in mind.

He thought of one, and began preaching:

"Gentleman," he said. "We must stop allowing our wives to wear make-up. It is inappropriate, indecent, impure, wicked, and by all means sinful. Any man who let's his wife wear make-up should be ashamed of himself!"

"But Mullah," said one of the men, "your wife always wears make-up!"

"Yes, that's true," Nasrudin remarked. "And it looks great on her, doesn't it?"

Pricing the conqueror

One day, the town's new conqueror asked Nasrudin, "If I were a slave, how much would I cost?"

"Five hundred dollars," Nasrudin responded.

"What!" the conqueror shouted in great anger. "Just the clothes I'm wearing right now are worth five hundred dollars!"

"Yes," replied Nasrudin, "I factored the clothes into my price."
