Nasruddin and the Slap

A man slapped Nasruddin on the face, so Nasruddin took the man to court, accusing him of assault.

The judge ordered that the man must give Nasruddin a gold coin by way of damages.

“I will go home, get the coin, and be back within an hour,” the man promised.

Nasruddin waited for an hour, and then another hour.

When three hours had passed and the man still had not returned, Nasruddin got up and slapped the judge.

“I’m going home, Your Honor,” he explained, “so when that man finally shows up, feel free to take the coin as compensation.”
