Body and cloak

"Nasrudin's wife ran to his room when she heard a tremendous thump.

'Nothing to worry about,' said the Mulla, 'it was only my cloak which fell to the ground.'

'What, and made a noise like that?'

'Yes, I was inside it at the time.'"

Idries Shah (1993), The Exploits of the Incomparable Mulla Nasrudin, The Octagon Press, London, p.61
