Nasreddin Hodja takes hid donkey to the bazaar for sale. However, his donkey has a temper, kicking the ones checking its tail and biting the ones checking its teeth. The crier says:
-"Hodja, take your donkey back; nobody will buy such a cranky donkey."
Hodja answers with a victorius smile:
-"Well, anyway, I brought it here not to sell it but to let people know how I suffer"

Doling out justice in Akşehir, Nasreddin Hodja hears the case of two men. One is a cook, long known for his notorious parsimony, and the other a dejected poor man. First, the cook gets the floor:
-"You Honor, I'd like to sue this man. I was cooking beans in front of my shop. The  saucepan was steaming through the lid. This man sidled up to it clutching a loaf. He started holding the morsels of bread over the steam and shoving them down his throat. Soon he was through with the whole loaf. I demanded the price for the steam of beans, but he didn't pay.
Having listened to the account carefully, Hodja turns to the poor man:
-"Is that true?"
-"Yes" says the poor man.
-"Hand me the purse, then" says Hodja.
The dejected pauper cannot object to a Judge. He hands the purse with a few coins to Hodja. Then, Hodja beckons the cook over. He holds the purse close to the cook's ears and starts jangling it. Then he says:
-"Come on now, you got your money"
In a shock, the cook protests:
-"Oh come npw, what do you mean?"
Hodja retorts:
-"I've had enough! One who sells the steam of a meal gets only the sound of money!"

-"It's over. I've won."
-"But how? What did you do?"
-"I waited till morning."
Cunning as ever, his friends say:
-"No way. You were kept warm by the light of a distant candle. You lost the bet, now prepare our feast."
Hodja has no choice but to agree. When it is time for the feast he places a tiny candle under a huge cauldron. Upon seeing this, his guests protest:
-"Oh, heck! What are you doing, Hodja?"
Hodja chuckles and says:
-"I'm going to cook you meal over this candlelight, my dear friends. This meal will be cooked by the heat just lise I was kept warm by it."

-"Suppose you didn't have the stones, what then?" the man asks.

-"The bear would run faster and catch you, then what?" says the man.
-"I'd climb a tree." says Hodja.
-"So whould the bear, then what?" asks the man.
