Liar Nasruddin

Mayor: “Nasruddin. You are known to be a liar and exaggerator. Tell me a lie without thinking, and I will reward you with fifty dollars.”
Nasruddin: “Fifty dollars? You just promised me a hundred dollars!“


Thinking itself is a lie. Whatever else is there is not a lie, though seemingly it may look a lie.
Nasruddin is spontaneous, does not have to tactfully put a lie. He just did not lied, he proved that the king was also a liar! It requires great strength to say what Nasruddin said here to king and such strong people do not lie! Their lies are to wake you out of your lies. Nasruddin is not a liar, he is a lion.
