One grape is as good as another
The village kids gathered around the Mullah and pestered him mercilessly for some grapes, and after sufficient nagging Nasruddin finally stopped, handed each of the boys a single grape, then turned to leave.
Mehmet, the oldest boy, complained, “Why are you so stingy, Nasruddin? You have so many grapes. Can’t we have more than one apiece?”
“Don’t be foolish,” said Nasruddin as he made a hasty exit. “All grapes taste exactly alike. If you’ve tasted one grape, you’ve tasted them all. So it doesn’t matter in the least if you get one or a whole bunch.”
Nasruddin holds to his stinginess and evades the kids with a simple (il)logical ruse:
If you’ve tasted one grape, that singular event is sufficient to be able to say, “I have tasted such a grape, and lo! because the grape was so delicious and juicy, I then decided, I am satisfied with my grape experience and require not even one more of that luscious fruit.“
Compare this story with the one in which Nasruddin hands out walnuts to the village kids, often titled, “God’s way, or mortal’s way?”.
