Post Facto Rationalization

The price of geese was rising sharply in advance of the festive season. Sensing that now was a good time to sell his bird, Nasrudin brought his goose to market. One prospect fancied the fat goose, but the bird hissed at the stranger and frightened him off. A second man attempted to weigh the big bird, but it bit him. A third who had witnessed all this remarked, “Your goose has a foul disposition.” Nasrudin replied, “Now you know why I am selling it.”
