Nasruddin and the Goat

Nasruddin and his neighbor were quarreling.

“You stink worse than a goat!” his neighbor said, so Nasruddin took him to court for slander.

The judge said, “Bring in a goat for comparison.”

They brought in a goat, and when the judge leaned down to sniff the goat, he fainted. That’s how bad the goat smelled.

They revived the judge with smelling salts, and then the judge said, “Now bring in Nasruddin.”

They brought in Nasruddin, and both the judge and the goat fainted. That’s how bad Nasruddin smelled.

They had to throw both Nasruddin and the goat out of court.
