WITTY TALES

A Tale of two heads


A man from Shiraz met a scholar from Damascus at the public baths.
Noting that the scholar was balding, the Shirazee upturned a brass vessel and, pointing to its rounded shining base, said to the scholar:
"How is it that all you Damascenes have heads like this?"
The scholar took the vessel from the man, upturned it and pointing to its empty cavity said:
"How is it that all Shirazees have heads like this?"
