Mulla Nasrudin


   The Mulla nearly fell into a pool. A man whom he knows slightly
was near and saved him. Every time he met Nasrudin after that he
would remind him of the service which he had performed.
   When this had happened several times Nasrudin took him to the
water, jumped in, stood with his head just above water and shouted:
‘Now I am as wet as I would have been if you had not saved me!
Leave me alone.’
