From  The Subtleties of the Inimitable
Mulla Nasrudin
by Idries Shah


FREAKISH

A man got into conversation with Nasrudin, standing outside a shop.

Nasrudin had a lot of stubble on his face. The man asked:

'How often do you shave?'

'Twenty or thirty times a day,' said the Mulla.

'You must be a freak!'

'No, I'm only a barber.'
