The Brainy Donkey

The Brainy Donkey :


Once, a donkey was grazing at the edge of the village. He was so lost in eating the sweet green grass that he wandered into the forest nearby.

Soon it was evening and the donkey decided to go home. So he turned to take the path which led to the village.

As he walked on, suddenly, he was confronted by a big fierce lion. The sight of the lion's large mane and sharp claws scared the donkey.

But the donkey was very clever. He addressed the lion and said, "Oh! Your Majesty, what a pleasure to see you. I would be honoured to serve you as your dinner.

But I must tell you about the proper way of eating a donkey. It is said, that one must start eating from the hind legs. That part tastes the best."

The lion believed the donkey and as he went behind him, the donkey kicked the lion with great force.

The lion was knocked down and fell into a thorny bush. By the time he was on his feet, the donkey had run off to the village.
