Nasrudin the Archer
- One day one of his fellow townspeople came upon
Nasrudin standing with a bow and arrow in his hand,
and saw dozens of target circles on the side of a barn
the Mullah was facing, each of which had an arrow
in the center of the bullseye. He asked in amazement
"Mullah Nasrudin, I never knew you were so gifted.
It always seemed that you were actually quite
clumsy. How is it that you have such good archery
Nasrudin then went into a long dialog about how he
had struggled and worked hard to find the perfect
method to shoot the arrows at a certain angle,
and have his body do the exact necessary movements,
and take into account the weather conditions, and
many more things that impressed the man greatly.
The man soon left to tell all the other people in
town about what a great archery master they had in
their midst. And Nasrudin went back to shooting
arrows into the side of the barn, and then drawing
targets around the arrow, with the arrow placed in
the center of the bullseye.
