The Lion and the Fox
There once was an old lion. He was too old to hunt, so he thought of an idea to feed himself. He put up a public notice outside his den. It said, "Old Lion is dying. Pay him a visit before it's too late!"
One morning, a hen came by.
Hen: Mr. Lion, how are you doing today?
Lion: I don't feel so good. Come and feel my head. It's so hot that it feels like I'm burning up.
So the hen went into the den and the lion ate it up just like that.
After some time, a sheep passed by.
Sheep: Hi, Mr. Lion. I can hear you cough from miles away. Are you okay?
Lion: No. I think I might die any second. Come and check my mouth. It feels like something is stuck at the base of my throat.
So the sheep went into the den and the lion ate it up just like that.
Then, more and more animals read the notice and went into the den, and the lion ate them one by one. One day, a fox walked by the den.
Fox: How have you been, Mr. Lion?
Lion: I feel as sick as a dog. Come and feel my legs. They're getting weaker and weaker.
Fox: No, I'm afraid not.
Lion: You cold-hearted fox!
Fox: It's the other way around. I just have sharp eyes. I see the footprints in the mud going in but not out.
The fox turned and left just like that. And no one has visited the lion's den ever since.
那裡曾經有隻老獅子。他太老以致於不能去打獵，所以他想到 1 個餵飽自己的辦法。他在他的洞穴外放了 1 張告示。告示寫道：「老獅子快死了。快來探望他在沒有太遲以前。」
然後，越來越多的動物看到告示走進去了洞穴，然後獅子就 1 個個地吃掉牠們。有天，狐狸路過了洞穴 。
