From The Subtleties of the Inimitable
Mulla Nasrudin by Idries Shah
An engineer was fixing a bell outside a house. Mulla Nasrudin came by, stopped and asked:
'What is that thing?'
'I've seen them before -- they don't work,' said the Mulla.
'What do you mean ?'
'The bell rings all right, but the fire burns just the same.'
