Mulla Nasrudin




The Logician

   Nasrudin walked into a village and stood on a chair in the market 
place.
   When a crowd had collected, he declaimed:
   ‘Know, O people, that the air here is similar to the air above my own 
village.’
   ‘What makes you think so?’ someone shouted.
   ‘Because I can see the same number of stars here as I can when I am
there.”
