Neighbourly help

Nasrudin’s neighbour stole several sacks of wheat belonging to the city, but was nabbed by the police.  Before the court date, the neighbour asked Nasrudin to lie for him.   When the judge questioned Nasrudin about exactly what happened, Nasrudin spoke in great detail about what happened to the sacks of barley.  “I asked you to tell me about the sacks of wheat , not sacks of barley,” interrupted the judge.  “Sacks of wheat, sacks of barley,” replied Nasrudin, “What does it matter when one is lying?”
