Which is my half?

Nasrudin and a friend were thirsty, and stopped at a café for a drink. They decided to share a glass of milk.

You drink your half first, said the friend, because I have some sugar here, just enough for one. I shall add this to my share of the milk and drink it.

Add it now, said the Mulla, and I will drink only half.

Certainly not. There is enough sugar to sweeten half a glass of milk.

Nasrudin went to the owner of the café, and came back with a large packet of salt.

Good news, friend, he said, I am drinking first, as agreed, and I want my milk with salt.
