One december day the village boys decided to play a trick on Nasreddin Hodja to fool him. They hid Hodja's coat when he was performing ablution for friday ritual. But Hodja perceived that a trick on the way.
- Hodja Effendi, it's a cold day, why don't you wear your coat? asked one of them
- I left my coat at home to keep the place warm! answered Hodja.
