A man had fallen between the rails in a subway station. People
were all crowding around trying to get him out before the train
ran him over. They were all shouting. "Give me your hand!" but
the man would not reach up. Mulla Nasrudin elbowed his way
through the crowd and leaned over the man. "Friend," he asked,
"what is your profession?"

"I am an income tax inspector," gasped the man.

"In that case," said Nasrudin, "take my hand!"

The man immediately grasped the Mulla's hand and was hauled to
safety. Nasrudin turned to the amazed by-standers. "Never ask a
tax man to *give* you anything, you fools."
