One day Mullah Nasruddin went to the market and bought a fine piece of meat.
On the way home he met a friend who gave him a special recipe for the meat.
Mullah Nasruddin was very happy.
But then, before he got home, a large crow stole the meat from Mullah Nasruddin's hands and flew off with it.
- You thief! Mullah Nasruddin angrily called after departing crow.
You have stolen my meat! But you won't enjoy it; I've got the recipe!
