If there was a part of thehandsom´s latest column I would criticise it´s the joke - I´m afraid Turkish humour still eludes me!  I think he should appoint lessluv sub-editor for the jokes Roll eyes

 

 

 I didn´t like to admit I didn´t get it (Shy) I can only imagine that it was really funny at the time.....but got lost in translation.......

 

Fee for editing jovial writings........hmmm PricelessRazz

I too am sometimes confused by thehandsom´s sense of humour. Sometimes difficult to tell when he is being serious. Unsure

 I did find the joke funny. I quite like the anecdotal style of the Nasreddin jokes. Big smile  What I meant was that I find some of thehandsom´s articles comical particularly the one about the "missing document" that may or may not have existed. <img src='/static/images/smileys//lol.gif' alt='lol'>  We all know thehandsom´s dogmatic style and can make allowances. Big smile

Oh, and the joke in the last column was terrible, but I´m suspecting it had a deeper meaning.. Satisfied nod

Tamerlane is the emperor, and he is asking Hodja an indirect question about his worth. Hodja doesn´t risk directly insulting the emperor, so he responds in an indirect and witty way saying that he is a worthless person sans his belongings.

 

It won´t bring out tears from laughter but I think it is an interesting/funny/smart anectode.

Dear Admin,

Explain these too


Once upon a time the Hodja was a judge and one day a man came to him.
“Your cow has killed mine!”, he cried.
The Hodja shouted:
“You silly fellow, how can the cow know that it is a crime to kill another cow. Case dismissed!”
“Oh sorry”, said the man. “I said it wrong. My cow has killed yours.”
“Then, this is another problem”, said the Hodja. “We´ll open the black book and see what it says.”

One day, people said to the Hodja:
“Your wife walks from house to house, tell her she mustn´t walk so much,”. “Alright”, said the Hodja. “If she comes to our house, I´ll tell her.”

One day, the Hodja went to another village. Nobody offered him something to eat, instead they asked him:
"Hodja, why do people yawn?”
“There are two reasons: One of them is tiredness, the other is hunger.”
After yawning for a while he finished up his words:
“I´m not tired!”

Sounds like if the Hodja was smart he wouldn´t have traveled to a different village and order the man with the dead cow to split the meat.  Hodja wouldn´t have been starved then, maybe alittle sleepy.<img src='/static/images/smileys//lol.gif' alt='lol'> (fast)
