Peel and All

Nasrudin’s wife watched fascinated as her husband ate his oranges, peel and all.

‘Are you not forgetting to remove the peel?’ she asked as he bit into another piece of fruit.

‘The fruit-seller is a very conscientious man,’ replied Nasrudin. ‘If oranges were meant to be eaten without the peel, he would have removed it before the sale.’
