One day, Nasreddin Hodja is heading home. A friend calls out to him from behind.
-"Did you see that, Hodja? The halva cauldron that went past a while ago was full to the brim."
Maintaining his composure, Hodja responds:
-"Well, what's that to me?"
-"But the halva cauldron was going to your house; how about that?" asks Hodja's friend.
Still keeping up appearances, Hodja answers:
-"Well, then what's that to you?"

A scholar is walking through the length and breadth of the world in search of the most intelligent man on earth. Now is the turn for Nasreddin Hodja's village and he asks the villagers:
-"Who is the most intelligent man in your village?"
The villagers name Nasreddin Hodja and the scholar meets him in the village square. He picks up a stick and draws a circlein the ground. Hodja divides the circle with the stick. The scholar draws one more line, dividing the circle into four parts. Hodja draws crosses on three parts of the circle. The scholar makes an upward gesture with his hands and Hodja makes a downward gesture. In awe, the scholar congratulates Hodja. Unable to make head nor tail of it, the villagers ask the scholar what is going on.
-"Whis man is indeed the most intelligent man on earth. I drew the picture of earth in the ground and he pointed out the equator with his stick. I divided the earth into four and he meant that three quarters were water. I asked what whould result from ground evaporation and he said it would rain.
Then the folks ask Hodja what is was all about and he responds:
-"This man is a glutton. He draw a tray of dessert and I indicated that the half was mine. He divided the tray into four and I then said three quarters of it was mine. When he gestured meaning that the fire below the tray should die down I said we'd rather put nuts and pistachios on it."

Nasreddin Hodja approaches a crowd gathered around a man in the Akşehir bazaar. The man is a street vendor trying to sell a particular bird. To his surprise, Hodja learns that the bird costs 50 silver coins while the nearby hens cost 5 silver coins each. Racking his brain over the discrepancy between prices, Hodja asks:
-"Mate, what sort of abird is yours that you domand 50 silver coins for it?"
-"Reverend Hodja, this is not just any bird. It has a special talent." replis the vendor.
-"What talent?" says Hodja.
-"They call it a "parrort" and it talks", says the vendor.
Hodja rushes home, dashing back to the bazaar with his turkey snatched from the coop. He stands near the man selling parrots and calls out in a loud voice:
-"This bird you see here is for 100 silver coins, only, here, here!"
The man selling more parrots than anyone else is astonished at this and asks:
-"Hodja, isn't 100 silver coins to much for a Turkey?"
-"But your charge 50 for your parrot" says Hodja.
The vendor replies:
-"As I've already said, my bird talks"
-"Well then, mine thinks" quips Hodja.

"How weird this world is" Somebody says to Nasreddin Hodja.
Tugging at his white beard, Hodja asks:
-"What's so weird about it?"
When he gets the reply "Come morning people go in all directions. Some this way, and some that way, I wonder why?" Hodja quips:
-"But of course, if they all went in the same direction, the earth would lose its balance; that is why!"
