Nasruddin and the Ocean

Nasruddin once took a long journey all the way to the ocean’s edge. This was the first time he had seen the ocean. He was astounded by the water stretching to the horizon, and the rise and fall of the waves mesmerized him.

He then bent down to take a drink and immediately spat it out. “Disgusting!” he yelled. “Luckily, I’ve got some real water here with me.”

He reached for his water-flask and poured some fresh water into the ocean.

“It’s true that you look very impressive,” he said, “but you need to learn what real water tastes like!”
