Nasruddin Reports a Stolen Donkey

A thief had stolen Nasruddin’s donkey, so Nasruddin went to the police station to report the crime, hoping that the police would find the donkey-thief and get his donkey back.

“I want to report a theft!” Nasruddin shouted. “Someone has stolen my donkey. I need your help!”

The police officer took out a piece of paper, ready to write down Nasruddin’s account of the events.

“Tell me what happened,” he said.

“How can I possibly do that?” Nasruddin exclaimed. “I wasn’t there when it happened! If I’d been there, I would have stopped the thief before he took my donkey.”
