Wikipedia article, viewed Apr. 11, 2014 : (Nasreddin; Turkish: Nasreddin Hoca; ALA-LC: Naṣraddīn Juḥā; Mullā Naṣru i-dīn, Uzbek: Nosiriddin Xo'ja, Nasreddin Hodja; Bosnian: Nasrudin Hodz̆a; Albanian: Nastradin Hoxha, Nastradini ... was a Seljuq satirical Sufi, believed to have lived and died during the 13th century in Akşehir, near Konya, a capital of the Seljuk Sultanate of Rum, in today's Turkey. He is considered a populist philosopher and wise man, remembered for his funny stories and anecdotes. He appears in thousands of stories, sometimes witty, sometimes wise, but often too a fool or the butt of a joke. A Nasreddin story usually has a subtle humor and a pedagogic nature.)
