It had been a while since the children of the village played a trick on Pak Him.
One day as Pak Him was conducting his usual classes in Qur'an reading and moral behavior,some of his students in the back row began to snicker.Pak Him knew they were hatching a mischievous plan,but he continued teaching as though he was none the wiser.Towards the end of class Pak Him asked the students if they had any questions.

Seeing that this was an opportunity,one of the miscreants at the back of the class raised his hand."O teacher,would it be in conformity with the Islamic principles of good behavior if one were to eat in the bathroom?".The student who had asked the question knew that it was not,but he wanted to show his friends that he was able to confound the clever teacher.

Pak Him smiled wryly and answered,"Of course you may eat in the bathroom my boy,but brush your teeth before you come out or people may think you were eating sh#t."
