Dancing Amidst the Terror Game:
Nasrudin and the Plague
He was on his way to Baghdad when he met Nasrudin. This one asked him:
– Where are you going?
The Plague replied:
– To Baghdad to kill ten thousand people.
After a while, the Plague met Nasrudin again. Very angry, the mullah said to him:
– You lied to me. You said you’d kill ten thousand people and killed a hundred thousand.
And the Plague replied to him:
– I didn’t lie, I killed ten thousand. The rest died of fear.
