Nasrudin's Death Wish
- This time Nasruddin really succeded to upset the King. "You are
hereby condemned to death!" yelled the ruller. "Yet in view of our
long time friendship, and in rememberance of the services rendered -
we allow you freedom to choose your way to die. So - what manner of
death do you choose? Death by beheading? Or hanging? or else?"
"In this case, Your Majesty, my choice is to die - of old age."
