Nasrudin had lost a very beautiful and expensive turban. But he did not seem to be very upset about it.
"Don't miss your turban, Nasrudin?" Someone asked him.
"Oh, I am sure someone will find it," said the Mulla cheerfully. "I am promising a reward of one silver piece."
"Do you think anyone will return a turban that cost almost a hundred silver pieces for a reward of one piece of silver?" asked the man.
"Do you think I did not think of that already? I have announced that I have lost an old, cheap turban. That is very different from what the real turban is like."
