Nasreddin Goes Shopping

One day Nasreddin went to town to buy new clothes. First he tried on a
pair of trousers. He didn't like the trousers, so he gave them back to
the shopkeeper. Then he tried a robe which had the same price as the
trousers. Nasreddin was pleased with the robe, and he left the shop.
Before he climbed on his donkey to ride home, the shopkeeper and the
shop-assistant ran out.
"You didn't pay for the robe!" said the shopkeeper.
"But I gave you the trousers in exchange for the robe, didn't I?" replied Nasreddin.
"Yes, but you didn't pay for the trousers, either!" said the shopkeeper.
"But I didn't buy the trousers," replied Nasreddin. "I am not so stupid as to pay for something which I never bought."

Two sisters and the cat

Mrs. Wilson and Mrs. Smith are sisters. Mrs. Wilson lives in a house in
Duncan and Mrs. Smith lives in a condominium in Victoria. One day Mrs.
Wilson visited her sister. When her sister answered the door, Mrs.
Wilson saw tears in her eyes. "What's the matter?" she asked. Mrs. Smith
said "My cat Sammy died last night and I have no place to [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] him".

began to cry again. Mrs. Wilson was very sad because she knew her
sister loved the cat very much. Suddenly Mrs.. Wilson said "I can bury
your cat in my garden in Duncan and you can come and visit him
sometimes." Mrs.. Smith stopped crying and the two sisters had tea
together and a nice visit.

It was now five o'clock and Mrs. Wilson said it was time for her to go
home. She put on her hat, coat and gloves and Mrs. Smith put the dead
Sammy into a shopping bag. Mrs. Wilson took the shopping bag and walked
to the bus stop. She waited a long time for the bus so she bought a
newspaper. When the bus arrived, she got on the bus, sat down and put
the shopping bag on the floor beside her feet. She then began to read
the newspaper. When the bus arrived at her bus stop, she got off the bus
and walked for about two minutes. Suddenly she remembered she had left
the shopping bag on the bus.

One day, Nasreddin was up on the roof of his house, mending a hole in
the tiles. He had nearly finished, and he was pleased with his work.
Suddenly, he heard a voice below call "Hello!" When he looked down,
Nasreddin saw an old man in dirty clothes standing below.

"What do you want?" asked Nasreddin.

"Come down and I'll tell you," called the man.

Nasreddin was annoyed, but he was a polite man, so he put down his tools. Carefully, he climbed all the way down to the ground.

"What do you want?" he asked, when he reached the ground.

"Could you spare a little money for an old beggar?" asked the old man. Nasreddin thought for a minute.

he said, "Come with me." He began climbing the ladder again. The old
man followed him all the way to the top. When they were both sitting on
the roof, Nasreddin turned to the beggar.

"No," he said.
