Nasruddin's New Teacups

Nasruddin had bought some new teacups and saucers and was carrying them home, awkwardly holding everything in his hands. As he struggled to keep hold of the cups and saucers, he didn't pay attention to where he was walking and stumbled. He fell to the ground, and the cups and saucers came crashing down with him.
When they heard the thud of Nasruddin falling and the sound of the cups and saucers shattering, everyone came to look.
"Nasruddin!" they shouted. "What happened? What's this? What did you do?"
"Stop staring!" Nasruddin shouted angrily. "Haven't you ever seen an idiot before?"
