From  The Subtleties of the Inimitable
Mulla Nasrudin
by Idries Shah


WIFE AND SECRETARY

'They have an interesting custom in England,' said Nasrudin, 'and it is one that I would like to copy.'

'What is that?'

'Businessmen take their secretaries to Paris and pretend that they are their wives.'

'But you haven't got a secretary!'

'I have thought of that. All I have to do is to take my wife to Paris and say that she is my secretary.'
