Mulla Nasruddin was walking in the bazaar with a large group of followers. Whatever Nasruddin did, his followers immediately copied. Every few steps Nasruddin would stop and shake his hands in the air, touch his feet and jump up yelling "Hu Hu Hu!". So his followers would also stop and do exactly the same thing.
One of the merchants, who knew Nasreddin, quietly asked him: "What are you doing my old friend? Why are these people imitating you?"
"I have become a Sufi Sheikh," replied Nasreddin. "These are my Murids (spiritual seekers), I am helping them reach enlightenment!"
"How do you know when they reach enlightenment?"
"That's the easy part! Every morning I count them. The ones who have left - have reached enlightenment!"
A woman called up the hospital and said,
"I want to know if the patient Rita Brown in Room No 1438 is getting better,"

The woman said, "Thank God! That's wonderful news!"
RMO: I take it you must be a family member or a close friend!
Woman: No I am Rita Brown. No one tells me anything!

Another guy runs in and says, "Bill! Your dad died!"
