The Judge’s Brand-New Shoes

One night Nasruddin found the judge lying drunk in a ditch. Chuckling, he took the judge’s brand-new shoes. They were just the right size!

The next day the judge complained that robbers had ambushed him. “They stole my brand-new shoes!” he yelled.

Nasruddin then strolled into court wearing the judge’s shoes.

“Where did you get those?” the judge demanded.

“I met a drunken man last night, and he insisted I take them,” Nasruddin replied with a smile. “Do you know who he is? I’ll gladly return them. He was, I’m afraid, very drunk.”

The judge glared at Nasruddin in reply.
