“Nasrudin, is your religion orthodox?” “It all depends,” said Nasrudin, “on which bunch of heretics is in power.”
Nasrudin (during his age, there was no car) has been looking for a parking place for twenty minutes already. He turns around, he waits, he drives a bit further, but finds nothing.
He has an important business meeting and he’s going to be late, but nothing, no parking space. Filled with despair he raises his eyes up to the sky and says:
“My God, if you get me a parking space in five minutes, I promise to you that I’ll eat kosher (halal) food for the rest of my life…”
And suddenly – O miracle! – right next to him a car drives away leaving an ideal parking spot.
So Nasrudin turns his eyes to the sky and says: “God, stop searching, I found one!”
One day Nasrudin and his friends decided to play a joke on the people in a village. So Nasrudin drew a crowd, and lied to them about a gold mine in a certain place. When everybody ran to get their hands on the gold, Nasruddin started running with them. When asked by his friends why he was following them, he said “So many people believed it, that I think it may be true!”
