The Lovelorn Lion and the Peasant

The Lovelorn Lion and The Peasant:


A lion was unfortunate enough to fall in love with the beautiful daughter of a peasant and he went to her father to ask for her hand in marriage.

The peasant was worried about his daughter's future, but didn't have the courage to refuse the lion openly.

'My daughter,' he pretended, 'is allergic to teeth and claws. Come back after you have removed them and then you can marry her.'

The lovelorn lion promptly had his teeth and claws removed, but when he came back, he was absolutely harmless and the peasant beat him with a stick and chased him away.
