A Hodja In The Dust – Joke

Nasruddin Hodja had a buffalo whose horns were set wide apart.<>

Hodja often felt an urge to sit on the animal’s head between the horns, but never dared try it.<>

One day the animal came and sat down very near him.<>

Hodja threw caution to the winds and seizing the horns swung himself into the space between them.<>

“Now I feel like a king on his throne!” he said exultantly to his wife. <>
The buffalo, startled by the sudden invasion of its privacy, got indignantly to its feet and jerked its head violently forward.<>

Hodja went sailing into the air and fell head foremost into a ditch.<>

“It doesn’t matter,” he said to his wife who came running to help him.<>

“It’s not the first time a king has lost his throne.”<>
