 Nasreddin* had an old shed. It had no windows, so it was

very dark, and it was full of old things.

One day Nasreddin went into this shed to get a ladder,

but slipped on something and fell against a big garden fork.

The fork hit him on the head and knocked him down. Then

it fell on top of him and hit him hard on the left leg. The ends

of the fork then went into his long beard. He fought with the

fork fiercely, and at last threw it off him, jumped up and ran

out of the shed. He was very angry. He had an old sword under

his bed, and he now ran and got this. Then he ran back to

the shed, opened the door suddenly and shouted in a terrible

voice, 'All right, come out and fight, you and all the other

forks in the world! I'm not afraid of you!'

* Pronounced /nVsred'di:n/ (nuss, to rhyme with bus; red; deen, to rhyme with seen

The stress is on the last syllable).
