A curtain man struck Zaid on the neck. Zaid rushed forward to settle the score with him,

"I have a question to ask you," said the assailant. "Answer me first, and then hit me back, I struck the nape of your neck; there was a sound of a slap. Now I have a question to ask you in all sincerity. The sound of that slap - was it caused by my hand or by the nape of your neck, highly honoured sir?"

Zaid replied, "Because of the pain I have not the leisure to stand and reflect on this matter impartially. Since you have no pain, you do the pondering!"
