Nasrudin and the abstract

Mullah Nasrudin was redoing the concrete on his driveway.

He first got rid of the old concrete. Then Nasrudin carefully mixed the new according to a recipe he had got from a friend who was a professional concrete pourer.

Finally he made it all smooth and went back in the house to write a sermon on the benefits of manual labor.

Just then the local children came around and could not resist the temptation of such a great target to play with. They started writing their initials in the beautifully finished work.

Nasrudin who glanced out of the window saw them, rushed out and angrily shooed the children away.

A neighbor who was the mother of one of the scolded children came out of the house with her crying frightened son and said, “What’s the matter, Mullah. Don’t you like children.”

Nasrudin replied, “Madam, I like children in the abstract and not in the concrete.”
