They're Playing Music

Hodja was returning home one night with one of his students when he saw a gang of thieves standing in front of a house, trying to break the lock. Hodja perceived that he would probably get hurt if he spoke up, so he decided to stay quiet and pass by quickly. But his student, however, did not understand what was happening, so he asked:
- "What are all those men standing there doing?"
- "Shhh!" replied Hodja. "They're playing music!"
- "But I can't hear anything!"
- "Well we shall hear the noise tommorrow!" Hodja said.
