Salt and Cotton in the River

river rider 

Nasrudin was taking a of salt to the market. His donkey waded through the river and the salt dissolved. When it reached the opposite bank the animal ran around in circles, overjoyed that its load had been lightened. nasrudin was annoyed. On the next market day he packed the panniers with cotton. The ass nearly drowned with the increased weight of the cotton soaked in river water. "There!" said Nasrudin gleefully. "That will teach you to think that each time you go through water you stand to gain!" Two persons walked into religion. One came alive, the other drowned.
