    Don't forget, that Ulysses is famous to have deceived Polyphemos using that Phrase.

    Once you have tasted good food, you will remember it from time to time.
    Nasrudin, who, being retired from Tamerlane's court, lived in modesty,
    walked once by the sultan's palaces and observed a big feast offered to important people under a splendid tent.
    His feet decided at once and carried him inside,
    straight to one of the chairs of honour,
    on the right hand of the throne.

    "And what do you think you are doing here?" asked the Chief Guard.
    "These places are for the guests of honour."

    "I am more than a guest."

    "Is that so? Are you an envoy of a foreign king?"

    "More than that."

    The guard considered Hodja from the slippers to the turban:
    "Are you one of the ministers in disguise?"

    "Much more than that," said Nasrudin looking him in the eye.

    "So, you must be His Majesty the Sultan, himself!" scowled the soldier.

    "I am above this," persisted Hodja without flinching.

    "Above the Sultan?! Nobody's higher than the Sultan."

    "Now you understand," concluded Hodja. "I am nobody."

    That would be another interesting question:

    What if a Solipsist Claims to be nobody?
