Who Died?

A traveler was passing through town when he came upon a huge funeral procession. Nasrudin was on a corner watching the people pass by.

“Who died?” the traveler asked Nasrudin.

“I’m not sure,” replied Nasrudin, “but I think it’s the one in the coffin.”


  • Language is imprecise and we can sometimes miss the context of a question.
  • Speak only the truth you know.
  • Once somebody is dead, it matters little who they were in life.
  • Being a traveler, he wouldn’t have recognized the person who died anyway. Ask a stupid question, get a stupid answer.
