From  The Subtleties of the Inimitable
Mulla Nasrudin
by Idries Shah


STOP-GO

One evening Nasrudin was stopped by a policeman.

'This is a summons for driving through a "Stop" light.'

The Mulla said:

'When I go into court, I shall ask for it to be balanced against all the times I have stopped at the "Go" light and never been credited for it.'
