Funny Tales Grandma Told Me

Seha was everything to every one. He could be the smartest man on earth in one tale but the dumbest in another. Seha could be the poorest of all men in some circumstances and yet an advisor to kings in others. He was a child, a man, an angel and even an underground creature. Seha was popular in many Mediterranean countries. He may have taken names such as Moha or Joha, yet he remained the same perennial clown. In short Seha offered people in Morocco, among other places, an opportunity to make fun of everyone and everything without offending anyone.
