Some sellers talked about the blessings of balsamic apples, some about the miracles of plant roots, and some talked about the benefits of the leeches inside the cans they raised over their heads.

'Communists are here'
An elderly politician, an experienced statesman, once said, "The communists are coming this year," and it became a headline for the newspapers, causing great disturbance in the public. The statement was nearly forgotten when a ship with a hammer and sickle on its chimney berthed and emptied its passengers. A citizen witnessing the situation cried out: "Alas! The communists are here." The peddlers smiled at the commotion, since they realized from their outfits that the arrivers were called communists, but were capitalists in practice. The passengers of the ship were on a Mediterranean tour which stopped in Istanbul for a couple of hours to buy souvenirs for their loved ones from peddlers' stands. While the ship was sailing away, the peddlers were smiling and started praying for the communists to stop by more frequently.
