Il venditore di cavalli


Nasrudin was in the marketplace listening to a horse dealer’s sales pitch.

“This is the most exquisite horse in this village,” the seller exclaimed. “It is lighting fast and never gets tired. In fact, if you left this village right now, you would get to Samarkand at five a.m. in the morning.”

Hearing this, Nasrudin spoke up and said, “Why on earth would I want to be in Samarkand so early in the morning?”
