Mullah Nasrudin Testifies
- Mulla Nasrudin was the witness in a railroad accident case,
so he was taken to court to testify.
"You saw this accident while riding the freight train?"
"Where were you when the accident happened?"
"Oh, about forty cars from the crossing."
"Forty car lengths at 2 a. m.! Your eyesight is remarkable!
How far can you see at night, anyway?"
"I can't say exactly," said Nasrudin. "Just how far away is the moon?"
