Often, Mulla Nasruddin stood in the market to be pointed out as a fool. No matter how often people offered him a large and a small coin, he always chose the smaller one. One day, a kind man said to him, “Mulla, you should take the bigger coin. Then you will have more money and people will no longer make a laughing stock of you.” Mulla said, “But then, people will stop offering me money to prove that I am more foolish than they are. Then I would have no money at all.” Mulla even went as far as to open a booth with a sign above it, ‘Two questions on any subject answered for only a 100 Silver Coins’. A man, who had two questions, asked, “A hundred silver coins are rather expensive for two questions, aren’t they?” “Yes, what is your next question?” said Mulla. The man was taken aback.
