Mullah Nasrudin moves to the country and decides he's
going to take up farming. He heads to the local co-op
and tells the man, "Give me 100 baby chickens." The co-
op man complies.
A week later Nasrudin returns and says, "Give me 200 baby
chickens." The co-op man complies.
Again, a week later the Mullah returns. This time he
says, "Give me 500 baby chickens."
"Wow!" the co-op man replies. "You must really be doing
"No," said Nasrudin with a sigh. "I'm either planting
them too deep or too far apart!"
