A joke from NasreddinOne year Nasreddin was very poor, so he became the servant of a rich man.
One day the rich man said to Nasreddin, "I am going visit the king this morning. I want to put my best coat on, but I never wear it when it is raining, because water spoils. Is it raining today? "
Nasreddin said, "I do not know sir, but I will go out and look."
But Nasreddin was a lazy man, and the rich man’s house was very big. Before he reached the front door, a cat ran past him. It was very wet.
Nasreddin smiled and said to himself, "A clever man like me dose not need to walk half a mile to look at the weather." He turned round, "Sir, it is raining hard."
The rich man put another coat on, and then his servant went to the front door with him. They looked outside, and the sun was shining brightly. There was no cloud in the sky, and the ground was quite dry! Of course the rich man dismissed Nasreddin at once.
As he walked home, Nasreddin had lots of time to think about the cat. "When is a cat wet?" He said to himself, "it is not always because it is raining outside. Some times it is because someone has thrown a jug of water over it to make it go away."
