the reward

Nasrudin had some good news for th King, and after a great deal of difficulty managed to gain an audience – although bt tradition every subject theoretically had the right of immediate access to the Court.

The King was pleased with what he had been told. ‘Choose your own reward’, he said.

‘Fifty lashes’, said Nasrudin.

Puzzled, the King ordered that Nasrudin be beaten.

When twenty-five strokes had been administered, Nasrudin called: ‘Stop’!

‘Now’, he said, ‘bring in my partner, and give him the other half of the reward. The chamberlain, Your Majesty, would not allow me to see you unless I would swear to give him exactly half of anything that I got as a result of my good news’.
