From  The Subtleties of the Inimitable
Mulla Nasrudin
by Idries Shah


WHAT'S LEFT

Mulla Nasrudin went to a donkey market.

'Are you in the market for donkeys?' a merchant asked him.

'Yes,' said Nasrudin.

'What about one of these remarkably handsome beasts?'

'Just a minute,' said the Mulla, 'I want you to show me the worst donkeys you have.'

'Those are the worst.'

'Very well, then, I'll take the rest.'
