The dolphin on a steady diet of micro-granules of plastic and after a loss of her sucklings due to several miscarriages said all in a fluster, “Oh I am carrying a dangerous cargo.”  She added, “My self control is gone and my bile is up !” Like a banshee she screamed,”Death to the foul fiend whose heart is a cash box and his  soul as silly as plastic!” She dived to the bottom and the ape at last made bed in a pile of plastic he had happily made ubiquitous.” Aesop at the end said, “You will call it poetic justice.” Pie the monkey said in an injured tone, “There you killed me off once again!” He was wroth.

Hamid the local Nuisance calls on Mulla Nasruddin on the day he opened Bak-Bak School for the Teachable.

Hamid: I have five sons all teachable. Mulla you teach what you can.  But your son, what is his speciality?

The royal messenger from King Shahryar was quickly let in by the Keeper of the City Gates. With due solemnity he and his escort party were brought to the Court of King Shahzaman.

Nervously he read it and keeping a very kingly appearance ordered his Vazir to take the visitors to their quarters to await the kings reply. He straightaway went to the king who was in his chamber and he read out the message from his elder brother. The king was elated but also troubled. He doted on his young queen and he spent most of the time in her company. He was what one calls,- because of his excess fondness, as uxorious, and was loath to be away for long from her company.
