Nasrudin talking to a cobbler who told the following riddle: "There is a person who is my father's son, but he is not my brother. Who is he?"

After a while, Nasrudin said, "I don't know. Who?"
"Me," the cobbler replied.
Greatly amused, Nasrudin went to a group of people the next day and told them the riddle.
He said to them, "There is a person who is my father's son, but he is not my brother. Who is he?"
After thinking for a while, they said, "Who?"
Nasrudin replied, "Believe it or not, he is the cobbler that works on Kalak Drive."
