One day a vizier said to Bahlool, “The Khalifa has made you Amir and commander of dogs, chickens,  and pigs."

Bahlool replied, "Then from now on don't disobey my orders because you have become my subject."

All of the vizier's companions laughed. The vizier was very ashamed and embarrassed because of Bahlool's reply.
