Mullah Nasrudin and the two thirds of a camel

Mullah Nasrudin was the Ghazi (judge).

There was an interesting case in front of him. Two men used to own unequal parts of a camel. Abbass the greedy rich merchant owned two thirds of the camel and Ali the poor honest farmer owned a third of the camel.

One day a flood drowned the camel and the goods he was carrying.

Abbass had taken Ali to Nasrudin’s court claiming that Ali owed him damages.

After the plaintive and defendant presented their case, Nasrudin stroked his white beard and pronounced, “Since Abbass owned two third of the camel, his share weighed the camel down and caused it to drown. Therefore I order Abbass to pay one third the cost of the camel to Ali.”
