A SUFI TALE
A Sufi Tale
Someone saw Nasrudin searching for something on the ground.
'What have you lost, Mulla?' he asked.
'My key,' said the Mulla. So they both went down on their knees and looked for it.
After a time the other man said, 'Where exactly did you drop it?'
'In my house.'
'Then why are you looking here?'
'There is more light here than inside my own house.'
- IDRIS SHAH "The Exploits of the Incomparable Mulla Nasrudin"
Remember, sometimes the best place to find the key is inside yourselves.
And now it's time to announce the winners.
The riddle is:
I shout without a mouth
Blaring north and south
My noise is there for hire
Strung along a wire
The correct answer is 'speaker' or 'speakers' but as nobody guessed this, the closest two answers were 'microphone'
