Laughing out loud

Laughing out loud

Your cat is dead

Nasrudin had a cousin who went to live far away, and left some of his possessions with Nasrudin. One day, the cousin's cat died, and Nasrudin sent him a message that bluntly said: "Your cat is dead." The cousin, very upset, sent a message back that said, "Where I live, we give people bad news more tactfully. Instead of just telling me flat out that my cat was dead, you should have let me know me little by little. You should have started off by saying, first told me, 'Your cat is acting strange,' then later said, 'your cat is jumping all over the place,' then still later told me, 'Your cat is missing,' and then finally broken the news and said, 'Your cat is dead.'

A month later, Nasrudin's cousin received a new letter from Nasrudin, which said: "Your mother is acting strange."

Nasrudin dies

Nasrudin was very old and lying on his bed, about to die at any moment. He said to his wife, "Why are you dressed in black and looking so sorrowful? Go put on your finest clothes, fix up your hair, and smile!"

"Nasrudin," she tearfully responded, "how can you ask me to do such a thing? You are ill, and I am dressed like this out of respect for you."

"Yes," Nasrudin said, "and that's why I made my request. The Angel of Death will be here soon, and if he sees you all dressed up and beautiful, maybe he'll leave me and take you instead."

And after giving a little laugh, Nasrudin died.
