Battle of the sexes

   In the teahouse, people were talking about the relative numbers of 
the sexes.
   ‘Throughout the world’, said the baker, ‘men and women are equally 
balanced in numbers’.
   ‘On the contrary’, said Nasrudin, ‘there are about 10 percent men’.
   ‘How do you make that out’?
   ‘Ninety percent do what their wives tell them to do’
