Both, Your Majesty!

Nasrudin was not sure about Court etiquette, and yet he was among the notables who would have to be received by the Sultan when he visited the locality.

An equerry quickly briefed him. The King would ask him how long he had been living there, how long he had studied to become a Mulla, and whether he was happy about the taxation and spiritual welfare of the people.

He memorized his answers: but they started in another order.

“How long have you studied?”

“Thirty Five years.”

“How old are you, then?”

“Twelve years.”

This is impossible! Which of us is mad?”

“Both, your Majesty!”

“You call me mad, like you?”

“Of course we are mad, but in a different way, your Majesty!”
