Mulla Nasruddin wanted to make some money fast.  He set up his table along the route that said ‘Caravan Route.’
 He put up his board: Export& Import. He would button hole two caravans as they crossed. He would act as the middle man and his name sure guarantee and would sell to each other goods on the spot and collect his brokerage. No hassles, cash down and his fees into his purse.

Fired up by tales of Mulla Nasruddin the Emir decided to see the strange places himself. He asked the mulla to accompany him. At one place Emir al-Sherwani had strange misgivings. He told Mulla to exchange clothes with him. The emir said,” You are to lead me. I wear your clothes and turban. And you my dagger, studded with rubies. Look at the handle, made of rhino horn. You shall draw their breath away. ”

They changed clothes and Mullah took the lead and thus they set out. The emir had to agree that the mulla was right. None noticed the difference. As they were about to enter another kingdom and before the wooden terrain Mulla took a banana from the baggage and stuck it in the waistband. Horrified the emir hollered, “You are to look me and not a monkey! Put back the dagger for all to see and admire.” Mulla answered,”Allow me, Sire; We are now in Gorilla land.”

The new counselor queried. “Emir does not want roots under ground. He does not trust what he cannot see.”

When checked with the emir he was told, ” I want keep all my goods and subjects under 24×7 observation. While digesting this piece of news he was called by the son of emir and said,” I am so sorry to see the overworked earthworms. I insist a special status for them. They are downtrodden.”

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?

Mulla: What I don’t teach I leave it to him. He is clever for his age. He teaches Bak-Bak what I cannot.

One year later.

Hamid,(angrily)- My sons still dont’ know a thing. Each time they ask something the reply is, ‘Now You tell me?. What kind of education is that?

Mulla: Simply your sons want it too easy. What use is merely asking questions? What are eyes and ears for?
