Mulla Nasrudin

Good News

   In the East, people who bring good news are always rewarded, and
this is considered a very important custom, never broken.
   One day Mulla Nasrudin, delighted at the birth of a son, arrived in
the market-place and started shouting: ‘Gather around! Good news!’
   ‘What is it, Mulla?’
   Nasrudin waited until everyone was present, then cried: ‘O people!
Make a collection for the bringer of good news, news for every single
one of you! This is the news! Your Mulla has been blessed with a son!’
