Nasreddin: You Are Right!

Nasreddin had been appointed to serve as judge in a court of law. During his very first trial, the prosecutor made such a forceful case that Nasreddin loudly proclaimed, "You are right!"

The clerk of the court then shouted, "Honored Judge, you have not even heard the defense yet. You cannot pronounce your judgment yet."

Next, the defendant spoke with great eloquence, rejecting all the claims of the prosecutor. Nasreddin loudly proclaimed, "You are right!"

Once again, the clerk of the court cautioned Nasreddin, saying, "Honored Judge, please reconsider. They cannot both be right."

Nasreddin then looked at the clerk and loudly proclaimed, "You are right!"
