Mulla Nasrudin

The Hunt

   The King, who enjoyed Nasrudin’s company, sent for him
one day to go hunting bears. Bears are dangerous. Nasrudin 
was terrified at the prospect, but could not get out of it.
   When he arrived back at the village, someone asked him:
   ‘How did the hunt go?’
   ‘How many bears did you kill?’
   ‘How many did you chase?’
   ‘How many did you see?’
   ‘How could it go “marvelously”, then?’
   ‘When you are hunting bears, “none” is more than enough.’
