Mulla Nasruddin Short Jokes Collection - Part 17

1. A drunk cowhand rushed into a bar waving and firing his guns at random and shouting, "All you
dirty, lousy skunks get outta here." Within a minute everybody had scattered and disappeared
except Mulla Nasrudin, who sat at the bar finishing his drink. "Well," barked the cowhand,
waving his smoking gun. "What about it?" "My," said the Mulla, "THERE WERE CERTAINLY A
LOT OF THEM, WEREN'T THEY?"


2. Mulla Nasrudin always said: "Oh, well, it might have been worse." One day an acquaintance
sped him and said, "I dreamed last night that I died, went to hell, and was doomed to
everlasting torment." "Oh, well," said Nasrudin, "it might have been worse." "What do you
mean, Mulla!" cried the man. "How could it have been worse?" "IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN TRUE,"
said Nasrudin.

3. "You have got to have more recreation and relaxation," said Mulla Nasrudin to the overworked
friend. "But I am too busy," said the friend. "THAT'S SILLY," replied Nasrudin. "ANTS HAVE THE
GREATEST REPUTATION FOR BEING BUSY ALL THE TIME, YET THEY NEVER MISS AN
OPPORTUNITY TO ATTEND A PICNIC."


4. Mulla Nasrudin was visited by a boyhood friend whom he had not seen for years. The man told
him a long story of misfortune: bankruptcy, death of wife and children, personal illness. He
ended by asking for a loan. The Mulla called his son and a big, athletic-type walked in.
"TOMMY," said Nasrudin, "THROW THIS POOR FELLOW DOWNSTAIRS; HE IS BREAKING MY
HEART."


5. Mulla Nasrudin had just returned a sheaf of poems to the budding young poet. "Do you think it
would help if I put more fire into my poetry, Sir?" the young man asked Nasrudin. "NO," said
the Mulla. "I WOULD RECOMMEND THE REVERSE."


6. Mulla Nasrudin finally bought a parrot at an auction after some rather spirited bidding. "I
assume the bird talks," he said to the auctioneer. "TALKS?" the auctioneer said. "WHO DO YOU
THINK HAS BEEN BIDDING AGAINST YOU FOR THE PAST HALF HOUR?"


7. Mulla Nasrudin, carrying a chair, walked up to the owner of a secondhand store and asked how
much it was worth. "Three dollars," said the secondhand dealer. The Mulla seemed surprised.
"Isn't it worth more than that?" he said. "Three dollars is the limit," the owner said. "See that?
Where the leg is split? And look here where the paint is peeling." "OKAY THEN," said Nasrudin.
"I SAW IT IN FRONT OF YOUR STORE MARKED $10, BUT I THOUGHT THERE MUST BE A
MISTAKE. FOR $3 I WILL TAKE IT."


8. The editor tried hard to read Mulla Nasrudin's handwriting. "Mulla, this handwriting is so bad I
can hardly read it," he said. "Why didn't you type out these poems before you brought them
in?" "TYPE THEM!" cried Nasrudin. "DO YOU THINK FOR A MOMENT THAT IF I COULD TYPE, I
WOULD BE WASTING MY TIME TRYING TO WRITE POETRY?"


9. Mulla Nasrudin's son, studying political science, asked his father, "Dad, what's a traitor in
politics?" "Any man who leaves our party," said the Mulla, "and goes over to the other one is a
traitor." "Well, what about a man who leaves his party and comes over to your's?" asked the
young man. "HE'D BE A CONVERT, SON," said Nasrudin, "A REAL CONVERT."



10. Mulla Nasrudin was obviously envious of the rich man who had just given him a dollar. "You
have no reason to envy me," said the rich man, "even if I do look prosperous. I have my
troubles, too, you know." "YOU HAVE PROBABLY GOT PLENTY OF TROUBLES," said Nasrudin,
"BUT THE DIFFERENCE IS, I AIN'T GOT NOTHING ELSE, SIR."
