From  The Subtleties of the Inimitable
Mulla Nasrudin
by Idries Shah


HOLD THAT WOLF

Nasrudin and a disciple went into a den to catch a wolf-cub.

Nasrudin went in first and found a fierce and full-grown wolf which attacked him. There was a terrible fight.

In the middle of the encounter, the disciple cried out:

'Stop kicking like that, I'm half covered with earth!'

'Yes,' gasped the Mulla, 'and if I stop what I'm doing, the other half of you will be covered as well.'
