Alternate crop…

The Mulla went to the barber who shaved him with a blunt razor and a clumsy hand. Every time he drew blood, the barber struck a wisp of cotton on the nick, to stop the bleeding. This continued for some time, until one side of Nasrudin’s face was thickly dotted with cotton wool.

As the barber was about to shave the other cheek, the Mulla suddenly caught sight of himself in the mirror and jumped up.

“That’s enough, thank you, brother! I have decided to grow cotton on one side and barley on the other!”
