Speedy Ox

Speedy Ox : A Mulla Nasruddin Hodja Story.


A horse race was about to be held and the contestants were being lined up.

Mulla Nasruddin Hodja came with an ox and asked that it be included in the race.

"Have you gone mad?" said the organizers. "What chance does an ox have against horses?"

"You talk that way because you do not know anything about my ox," said Hodja. "When it was a mere calf it could run almost as fast as a pony. Now that it is older it should be able to run even faster."
