Mulla Nasrudin

Not my business to know

   Nasrudin’s donkey was stolen.
He immediately went to the police.
   ‘Mulla,’ said the Chief of Police, 'this is serious. We will
spare no effort to get your donkey back. After all, you are
rather famous. Now begin at the beginning and tell me how
it happened.’
   ‘As I was not there when it happened, I can hardly tell
you, can I?’ said Nasrudin. ‘Besides, it is not my business
to know.’
